In it ain't no fairy tale, Lusia Strus interweaves her Ukrainian immigrant parents' marriage with her own. "In the process, she offers a ferociously honest, fiercely impassioned, often starkly funny and deeply moving look at what it means to take and keep wedding vows...and what it takes to break them." (Chicago Sun Times) An evolving show about the differences between what we insist life promises and what it delivers. "Yesterday's honesty is today's bullshit", says Strus. Things get in the way of "happily ever after" ...like addiction...and cancer...and honesty. Honesty always gets in the way of the story. It just does.
It ain't No Fairy Tale is presented as part of the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival.
