Nominees for the GS Critics’ Choice Award

Vancouver Fringe, Loretta Seto, Dirty Old Woman

Loretta Seto’s witty script and a stellar cast earned Dirty Old Woman a Critics’ Choice Award nomination

Kathleen Oliver and I have picked the nominees for this year’s Critics’ Choice Award at the Vancouver Fringe. They are: Chase and Stacey’s Joyride, Dirty Old Woman, Little One, Magic Unicorn Island, and Moonlight After Midnight. Terrific shows, all of ’em.

Thanks to all of the artists, staff, and volunteers for making this another solid Fringe. A special thanks to Cara Cunningham, the head of box office, who made these last few days a lot easier for me than they would have been without her.

  1. I loved Dirty Old Woman! The dialogue and writing was fantastic.
    Will have to check out some of your other choices, thanks!

  2. Let;s see Dirty Old Woman as a full length script. ::The audience when I saw it was wanting more.

  3. Go see Dirty Old Woman…. Best show I’ve seen at the Fringe in years!
