An hour spent with master storyteller Paul Strickland is an hour well spent and one which you shouldn’t miss.” – Cincinnati Enquirer

During the summer of 2015 we were lucky enough to host a very special show for our good friend Corin Raymond, who was in town for The Winnipeg Fringe Festival, where he performed his powerful one-man-show Bookworm, then performed a set of amazing songs. It was a different format from the all-music shows that we’d done in the past (and since) but it was a really nice change of pace and something that we’ve often thought about trying again.

That same night, we were introduced to fellow Fringe performers Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald. They stayed long after most of the audience had left and swapped hilarious songs and stories with Corin and Andrew Neville, and it was wonderfully entertaining.

Paul was in town at that time for his almost-entirely-sold-out run of a highly acclaimed show called Ain’t True and Uncle False, which the Winnipeg Free Press gave 5/5 stars. Since then he’s gone on to produce other wonderful and highly acclaimed shows like Papa Squat (review), Balls of Yarns (review), and last year’s wonderful, collaborative Tales Too Tall for Trailers (review). Each show has been hilarious, entertaining, and almost always sold out with universal rave reviews. And every time we see Paul and Erika we suggest that we should hang out and let people hear some of the magic that happened after-hours in 2015.

And here we are!

Paul and Erika are at this year’s Winnipeg Fringe Festival July 18-28 with a show called 13 Dead Dreams of Eugene: (www.winnipegfringe.com/performer-detail.aspx?kw=Theatre+Mobile)

X-Files meets the Twilight Zone
in the dark!

This award-winning shadow and flashlight reenactment of nightmares won “Best Show” at the Orlando International Fringe Festival in May 2018 and ran OFF-BROADWAY in November of 2018.

After that show wraps, they’re going to stick around for an extra day and put on a special, intimate evening of songs & stories exclusively at The Sunset Saloon!

You won’t see a show quite like this at The Fringe Festival, any other house concert or any other festival anywhere! This is a special opportunity, and once we start telling people at the festival about it, I’d bet that we’ll fill the place in no time. We’d rather fill the room with our friends and supporters, though, so get on the list as soon as you can to avoid being left out!

Please RSVP to confirm your seat ASAP! Advance tickets may be sold during the Fringe Festival, and those who have confirmed and/or pre-paid will be given priority access to ensure the best possible outcome for the performers.

Paul Strickland is a nice combination of Gamble Rogers, Kevin Kling and Willy Claflin. He’s got a whole bunch of tall tale type stories from his fictional trailer park  with a whole host of quirky, sweet, smart, and hilarious characters.” – Bil Lepp
