Welcome. to the fabulous f i f t h a n n u a l Fringe Theatre Event! W h o ' d a thought it was possible? W h e n I look over the w i l d and w o n d e r f u l variety of shows w e have l i n e d u p t h i s year ( f r o m a l l across Canada, the U.S., England, France, Mexico, N e w Zealand...) a n d consider the thousands of participants of a l l ages and a l l backgrounds w h o take p a r t i n t h i s u n i que festival—artists, audience, staff and sponsors—I have to shake m y head i n amazement at h o w far w e have come i n five short years...
Tips for Fringegoers... 1) C h e c k the m a p : The 13 theatres at Fringe T h e F i f t h are a l l located w i t h i n easy w a l k i n g distance of each other. Some are real theatres, but most are converted halls, g y m s , warehouses a n d stores. A l l entrances are clearly m a r k e d w i t h Fringe signs. 2) C h e c k t h e s c h e d u l e : A l l 13 theatres operate f r o m n o o n each day u n t i l after m i d n i g h t . Performances are scheduled continuously i n each space, w i t h approximately one h o u r b e t w e e n shows. Whatever t i m e y o u a r r i v e on the Fringe o u r new, revised master schedule w i l l tell y o u w h a t shows are p l a y i n g next i n w h i c h theatres (see page 72). 3) C h e c k t h e s h o w s : Study the prog r a m m e listings c a r e f u l l y before you b e g i n . T h e index lists the " g e n e r a l " style of the show, b u t it's best to check the i n d i v i d u a l listings for more details. Each show is presented once a day o n l y a n d always i n the same venue. M a n y of the p r o d u c t i o n s have split perform a n c e schedules so y o u m a y be able to catch a show at different times. 4) C h e c k the b o a r d : O n c e you've selected y o u r shows, check the large notice b o a r d on 8 3 r d Avenue. O n it w i l l be the next show appearing at each of t h e theatres and w h e t h e r or not it is " s o l d o u t . " D a i l y changes, substitutions and S T R E E T E N T E R T A I N M E N T w i l l also be posted here.
Most of y o u , I ' m certain, have y o u r o w n p a r t i c u l a r memories of h i g h t i m e s and b o l d performances f r o m past Fringes and I hope w e can add to t h e m this summer. For those of y o u w h o are new arrivals o n the Fringe, a special welcome, and a hope that y o u w i l l f i n d new friends a n d share w i t h t h e m some lively theatre experiences. A l l of us at C h i n o o k have w o r k e d h a r d to encourage the most exciting performers to come to the Fringe a n d to make the festival as accessible as possible to theatregoers of a l l ages. Above a l l , I hope w e have managed to retain the most essential ingredients of a t r u e ' 'celebration'' of the p e r f o r m i n g arts—artistic adventure a n d v i g o u r o u s audience involvement.
There are some m i n o r changes t h i s year to the " m e c h a n i c s " of the Fringe (ticket sales t i m e s , master schedule, etc.) made i n response to y o u r demands for better c o m m u n i c a t i o n a n d m o r e efficient line-ups. But the " s p i r i t " of the Fringe remains the same—after five f u n - f i l l e d , frantic years the largest alternative theatre festival i n Canada s t i l l belongs to the artists and t h e i r audience... Welcome to F r i n g e the F i f t h — i t s y o u r s to enjoy! B r i a n Paisley Artistic Director C h i n o o k Theatre
5) C h e c k the t i m e : There are no advance ticket sales at the Fringe. Tickets must be purchased at each theatre. T i c k e t s for the first s h o w at e a c h s p a c e w i l l go o n s a l e at 11:00 a m . T i c k e t s w i l l b e s o l d for the n e x t s h o w a s s o o n as the p r e v i o u s one goes into p e r f o r m a n c e — a n d so o n , for the rest of the day. 6) P l e a s e note: Tickets are l i m i t e d to t w o per customer a n d are sold o n a first-come, first-served basis. A f e w seats w i l l be reserved at each performance for m e d i a , staff a n d sponsors w h o have deadlines to meet—your co-operation is appreciated! N o ticket costs m o r e t h a n five dollars—and m a n y are less. A l l ticket revenues go d i r e c t l y to the artists! 7) R e m e m b e r : T h e f r e e d o m of performers at the Fringe is utterly u n r e s t r a i n e d . C h i n o o k staff a n d volunteers organize the event, b u t all products are created by the artists themselves. You are the f i n a l judge of t h e i r entertainment value. I f y o u enjoy a show—tell y o u r friends; i f y o u d o n ' t — t r y another!
8) A n d d o n ' t forget: There w i l l be a w i d e v a r i e t y of street entertainment t h i s year ( w i t h artists ' 'passing the h a t " ) , a n d other O l d Strathcona Foundation Street D a n c e (Friday, August 15 at 8:00 p m — a d m i s s i o n $5.00), a n d O p e n i n g P a r a d e (Saturday, August 16 at 10:00 a m ) , the d r a w for t w o free Super Passes (details o n the coupon below) a n d a fantastic F l a m i n g F i n a l e (Sunday, August 24 at M i d n i g h t ) .

Tansi! The arts have always been an integral part of the life and culture of Canada's Native people. Traditionally, the storytellers, the singers and drummers and the dancers provided a living record of rituals, legends and values that were passed on from generation to generation. Visually, their colorful decorations and designs added an attractive dimension. W i l l i the arrival of the liuropeansâ€”and particularly the creation of the Metis through their mixing with the original inhabitants European music and dance, and unique new versions home of them, wi re developed. Again, unique new garb was developed lo enhance the new activity.
Today, while retaining their historic cultural expression, Native people are also putting their own unique mark on theatre, music, dance and other forms of cultural expression. This combination of the traditional and the contemporary, steeped i n a rich and unique heritage, offers a fascinating, entertaining and wide-ranging addition sure lo draw an enthusiastic response from the tens of thousands of visitors to "The Fringe."

At Esso, the sound of laughing children is music to our ears. Especially when those kids are from the Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre in downtown Toronto. The Centre gets youngsters involved in acting, music, marching bands and community shows. But what's even more important is that volunteers and counsellors have reached out into the neighbourhood to give young people their own very special place-a place where achievement and learning go hand-in-hand with fun. Esso proudly helps fund many non-profit community arts projects across the country. And that makes life a little better for us all. You make us better.
Your community begins with you. What is a community? It's people. People like you. The way you and your friends live shapes your community. Keeping informed about the risks involved in the abuse of alcohol, cigarettes and other drugs allows you to make positive decisions about your lifestyle. Help create a stronger, more caring community. The starting point is you.

In 1902 August Strindberg created a storm of controversy when his wife starred in a new, possibly autobiographical play, The Stronger, in which two actresses confront one another as wife and mistress competing for love and fame. The wife's monologue is met w i t h total silence from the mistress. In 1954, Weisgall and Hart's opera based on this play received instant acclaim.

Birds I n Space/ The Man Himself Sheri D. Wilson/Allan Drury The Malmoth Group & T h e Vancouver Conservatory of Theatrical Arts Society Vancouver, B . C . 1 hour 45 minutes The Man Himself: a one man play by Alan Drury, is a subtle and insidious explanation of the attractions of fascism. In 50 minues, the play paints a vivid portrait of one man's struggle to understand his society and his attempts to explain his involvement in the national front, Britain's neo-nazi group. His reasoning and logic are chillingly understandable. Birds in Space: Phffft!

Sore Throats is a study, at times comic and at times savage, of the power of sex and money. A feminist play centring on a woman's liberation from an abusive relationship, it focuses on the life of Judy, following the disintegration of her marriage.

This Tour De Force examines the lives of two brothers as they struggle for dignity beneath the oppressive cloud of Apartheid. Written some 25 years ago, Fugard's prophetic play marks the first time that a mixed cast appeared on a South African stage. Shortly after its opening, the authorities closed the production, banned subsequent performances and invoked laws prohibiting mixed audiences. The Blood Knot is more than an outcry against injustice. It is a celebration of mankind's indominable spirit in the face of overwhelming odds.
