Some tales from the production, and your last chance to book tickets
What a ride it's been to have my comedy, Every Little Nookie, premiere at Canada's largest theatre company: the Stratford Festival, directed by the brilliant ted witzel. I'm humbled by the investment, passion and skill of our DYNAMITE team of creatives. And deeply grateful to the Festival for believing in the vision of this work. I was delighted by the response of audiences–both Straford's regular audience and new audiences who rarely see themselves reflected in stories on main stages.
Submerged in comedy, Every Little Nookie probes nuclear families, non-monogamy and the housing crisis. Boomer and millennial characters confront what it might take to work together on some of the enormous challenges of our times–propelled by a fast-paced and slightly scandalous romp!
Here are some quotes from reviews:
* Critic's pick *
“Delightful and hilarious romp”
“A very strong sense that everyone who walks into that theatre is welcome and celebrated”
“With Drake’s comedic and emotional sensibilities, and witzel’s gifted direction, Every Little Nookie is a season highlight”
“Sunny Drake has masterfully created a socially significant work filled with ever-present and audience-appreciated wit"
“Naughty, hilarious and poignant”
I couldn't be more thrilled!
The show closes Oct 1st. There is a bus from Toronto to Stratford right in time for the show.
