Go Fest Yourself

Dispatches from the festival frontlines.


The one woman comedy show, Ladyvision features local indie musician and contributor to CBC's The Irrelevant Show, Jill Pollock.  The show parodies the medium of public access TV as it explores the last woman on earth’s pain and loneliness. While the play has its highlights, a funny book review scene, an endearing central character, and several of Pollok’s charming ukulele songs, much of the humor falls flat.  The play's concept is intriguing and has potential, but the script and its delivery leave something to be desired.  If you are attracted to the quirks of public access TV, you may appreciate this play more than others, otherwise, prepare yourself for a long hour.

One out of five stars.
