Almost a Stepmom and Fifty Shades of Dave / Facebook
What: A double-bill preview of Vancouver Fringe shows Almost a Stepmom and Fifty Shades of Dave. The former is a darkly comic tale about the ups and downs of becoming a stepmother. The latter is a tastefully risqué parody of The Vinyl Cafe with three original stories that thrust Stuart McLean’s classic Canadian couple, Dave and Morley, into situations you’ve never heard on the CBC.
When: August 31
Time: 7 pm
Where: Havana Restaurant – 1212 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Tickets: Tickets just $10 at the door, free for Fringe Volunteers.
