“Seldom does a play come along that is so passionately, thoroughly, unapologetically weird.”- Vue Weekly

The Pink Unicorn by Elise Forier Edie

The Pink Unicorn

"...any outline of the story in a short review can't possibly give you the richness and depth of Edie's play, Trevor Schmidt's sympathetic production and Lambert's compelling performance… Her Trisha thinks of herself as "dumb," and sometimes she can't find the right words but in the final moments the words are there and the actress will bring tears to your eyes. Five stars." – Edmonton Sun

Christina / Philippe by Per Brask
