Princess Polly loses the popular vote for Miss Leader of the Free World to a Department Store Mannequin. A Prince Charming Type has it all figured out; he knows he can save you, if only you would listen to him. In this comedy of errors, Polly learns what it takes to change the world, and it’s less funny than she thought. A brand new show from the creative team that brought you Roller Derby Saved My Soul (Patron’s Pick 2014 Winnipeg Fringe) and Everybody Dies In December (Best Drama 2016 Atlantic Fringe).
This piece is the wild and delicious smoothie you get when political satire, a guy with a saviour complex, and a woman who is ready to burn it all down get thrown in a theatrical blender and you hit “pulse.” This piece explores the absurdity of our collective obsession with scripting reality, the tensions surrounding body image and beauty, and the idea that change can arrive from within these systems. We hope you’ll help us laugh at ourselves, and the ways we’ve built our world. If you laughed at Melissa McCarthy’s version of Sean Spicer, this is the play for you.
