The Progressive Polygamists: The Sweetest Reformers
A Two Wrongs That Write satirical comedy
What would it be like if your best friend was your sister-in-law, AND your husband’s wife?
Join these two sweet “sister wives” from a BC polygamist society in this satirical comedy, as they “reform” their way across Canada – revealing the real side of polygamy.
“WE ARE HERE TO GIVE YOU THE FACTS!”
This show includes: audience participation, true Polygamist facts/research, character mash ups, jump rope, history, and song!! The Progressive Polygamists shine a new light on this topical and controversial community and leave an audience wondering the right and wrongs of polygamy, and its role in Canadian society today.
In its first year of production, the Progressive Polygamist have performed to sold out audiences in Toronto, Saskatoon, Vancouver and Courtenay, as well as the main-stage of the Firehall Arts Centre (as part of the 2010 BC BUDS festival). The "sister wives" even earned a Cultural and Leadership Grant from the National Theatre School of Canada.
