About Clean Irene & Dirty Maxine:
Written and performed by Anna Chatterton and Evalyn Parry, directed by Karin Randoja and designed by Sherri Hay, Clean Irene has toured to great acclaim from Halifax Nova Scotia to Dawson City, Yukon…it’s our last time doing it EVER in Toronto!

“..beneath the show’s whimsy lies a subtle, satirical sting that spares no one.” ~ Eye Magazine”

“Wickedly funny…great physicality, smart satire and snappy, spot on performances!” ~ NOW Magazine

“You’d be hard pressed to find a better pairing of performers on stage than Parry and Chatterton.” ~  THE GLOBE & MAIL

“ …just the right mix of deadly earnestness and naughty knowingness.”  ~ The Toronto Sun

About John Millard and Happy Day

“like a mixture of the Lone Ranger and Kurt Weill” ~National Post

“The music rolled out like a ballerina and a soldier from a Swiss clock, like a hodgepodge of stone and wood and rusty tin and cracked glass that somehow fit perfectly together. And the sound? Country and Kurt Weill, mazurka and bluegrass, Celtic ballad and marching band music, all at once. ” ~Globe and Mail

I say, hearing is believing — John Millard rarely plays in these parts, and although his performance with Happy Day really defies description,  it’s got to be both the happiest and the saddest music ever, one of the most original and wonderful things you’re likely to hear this February!
