About this show

Portraits -- A Festival of One-Woman Shows is a multi-artists celebration of the passions, talents, and energies of three dangerously seductive women. It is performed by the Canadian theater company Femme Fatale, from London, Ontario. Jazzabel features singer/actor Denise Pelley as both Grace and Jane. Set in Harlem, 1939, Grace's and Jane's individual paths are chronicled through story and song using hits as well as less known gems of the jazz era. The Shimmering Verge is a humorous, moving, and sexy stand-up monologue using Molly Peacock's best-known poems about her family, her spirituality, her marriage, and urban life. Nona is a performance art piece, featuring cartoonist Victoria Roberts. Inspired by one of her illustrated characters, Nona is a woman with a mind of her own, living in part fantasy part reality.
