But Wait! There’s More!Maid in Canada

Death to hypocrisy, smash the state, fuck the patriarchy, damn the lies. J McLaughlin’s life-long passion for miniature golf and Aeolian harps inspires a whimsical journey of self-discovery, self-forgiveness, empowerment, and love.* J is a mean, funny, petulant, weird queer old maid. Written for this year’s festival, But Wait! There’s More! follows previous UNO Fest shows including This Time I Mean It (2017), and unpacks the jorrows** of anxiety, ecstasy, true love, dark thoughts, outer space, inner peace, death, desire, enlightenment, sex, smoking, drinking, fear, rage, paranoia, guilt, greed, pleasure, failure, egomania, megalomania, and other people.
**jorrows(pl): joy + sorrow
Note: this show contains water-based haze.
