Under the Nose: Memoirs of a Clown

Written by Sue Proctor

With Sue Proctor as Pierrot, Marmelade, & Agnes Tidbits,

& Christine Bellerose as Fraise

June 29, 2011 – Loonissee and Les Babines are proud to present Under the Nose: Memoirs of a Clown, an autobiographical comedy, at The Playhouse Studio, Venue #3, opening July 14 and running for 7 days as part of the Big Top Winnipeg’s 2011 Fringe Festival.

Under the Nose: Memoirs of a Clown is a 60-minute romp through the land of make-believe, based on the real-life adventures of Sue Proctor. The play is a tour de force bringing to life the charms and tribulations of not one, not two, but three clowns living inside one woman. Who of the three – Pierrot, Marmelade, and Agnes Tidbits will take command of the show?!  It only gets trickier when Fraise, who flew all the way across the country to see the show, follows her nose into the upside-down, intriguing, magical world of clowns. It only gets trickier when Fraise, who flew all the way across the country to see the show, tumbles nose first onto stage, and into the upside-down, intriguing, magical world of clowns. Under the Nose: Memoirs of a Clown explores what it is like to be behind the mask. The show is about living with clowns, aging with clowns, and carrying on.

“MAD CAP FUN!!!! CHECK IT OUT!!!!”
