From the company behind Matchstick (Outstanding Original Work – Ottawa Fringe 2013, ★★★★★ – CBC Manitoba, VUE Weekly Edmonton), Aiden Flynn Lost His Brother So He Makes Another (Best English Production – Montreal Fringe 2014, ★★★★★ – The Torontoist), Look//See (2015), and The Wild Dog Waits On The Concrete Path (★★★★ – Winnipeg Free Press 2018).

A Novelist begins writing a romance without developing the Love Interest character, so she refuses to participate. The Novelist – with the help of the Not-So-Omniscient Narrator – needs to traverse time and genre to pen a story she’ll accept.

Everyone struggles for authorship in this meta-comedy that asks “who is writing who?”

Adapted from the novel “A Rebellious Heroine” by John Kendrick Bangs (1896).
