Fringe hit “The Downs”

The hit Fringe show “The Downs” is coming to Procunier Hall at the Palace Theatre, November 26-28.

After playing to sold out houses, “The Downs” won the Producer’s Pick Award at the 2015 London Fringe Festival.

“The show was so well received last summer at the Fringe Festival we sold out 4 of our 6 shows!” recollects producer, Deb Chantler. “We had to turn people away at the door.”

I recently saw “The Downs” at The Forest City Community Church. Produced as a fund raising event, over $90,00 was raised to help settle Syrian refugees in London. A portion of the ticket sales from the November 26-28 performances at the Palace will benefit the Palace Theatre Restoration Fund.

The The Forest City Community Church performance was magical.

Sheryl Scott, who wrote and performs in “The Downs,” has created a laugh filled, one person show that surprisingly concludes with a poignant message.

Reminiscent of Acadian New Brunswick’s “La Sagouine,” a play of monologues by Antonine Maillet, Scott’s Millie Johnson is simple, yet wise woman with a penchant for comedic folklore.

Given the success of “The Downs”, consider purchasing tickets in advance. The Nov. 26th is already sold out. It’s truly a performance that’s not to be missed.

Tickets available at The Palace Online Box Office.
