Following a sold-out Toronto and Vancouver run and with over 450,000 followers across social media, decorated comedian Laura Ramoso brings her latest special, FRANCES, to the Roxy!
"A fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, tour de force...Ramoso is truly a performer to watch." - SesayArts Magazine
"An absolute riot; full of laughs from start to finish." - A View from the Box
Directed by Second City veteran Alastair Forbes, FRANCES takes Ramoso's signature physical comedy, satire, mime, and critically-acclaimed writing to the nth degree. Bigger, bolder, and riskier, she pushes the boundaries of the form to create sketch comedy magic.
The show follows Frances on her journey to meet up with her ex-boyfriend, Frank, who has asked her to "talk". As she makes her way through the city, audiences will encounter a variety of unforgettable characters and painfully relatable scenarios.
