Vic Fringe Bump – Public Confessions of a Public Servant

A quick note to all the companies that have been sending me press releases for their upcoming Vancouver Fringe Shows:

With regrets I am unable to offer the free Video Listings promotional section of the site to you this year as I have recently moved from Vancouver to Victoria. However, if you send me a YouTube link to your own video promo for your Fringe show I would be happy to feature it on the site along with the official Fringe promotional copy.

The Video Listings section is of course available to any Victoria-area companies, or companies traveling here for the Fringe starting August 26. Email me at vanstage(at)gmail(dot)com for more information.

It will look a little something like the following. Missie, take it away!

Public Confessions of a Public Servant

For anyone who has ever suffered the horrors of cubicle life comes Public Confessions of a Public Servant, a brand-new show that combines poetry and theatre to tell the adventures of one young public servant.

“Well, I’ve worked for nine ministries in three years – that’s a record,” said writer and performer Missie Peters. “This show is a combination of real-life stories and poems inspired by my experience as a public servant.”

Directed by Atomic Vaudeville’s Alex Wlasenko, Public Confessions is Peters’ first solo show. Whimsical, irreverent and entertaining, Public Confessions follows Peters as she navigates the bureaucracy and shares her tips on staying sane in government.

Missie Peters is a Victoria-based poet and improviser. She is a two-time Victoria poetry slam champion, a member of Tongues of Fire, one-half of the improvised spoken word duo SpeakEasy and the director of Not Your Grandma’s Poetry Productions.

The Victoria Fringe is an eleven-day, un-juried international theatre festival, featuring over sixty comedy, drama, dance, and spoken word companies from around the world in fifteen downtown venues.
