Dusty Shoes has had three shows in Prince Edward Island. Two at the Carrefour Theatre in Charlottetown, and one at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown just last Saturday night.
We’ve had some excellent feedback and also some mixed feedback. I expected the mixed (“It wasn’t what I expected”) and always appreciate that there are still many people who “get” this strange show that presents itself like an abstract painting that pushes buttons.
My goal remains solid that people should be entertained but thinking about their own lives as they leave the theatre. Some of the delayed feedback I’m receiving shows me that I’m reaching people who are ready to make changes in their lives.
Doing Dusty Shoes at this time of my life has become even more significant to me than I expected! Having just lost my father in May, then a big personal relationship change on top of it is pushing my OWN buttons. Life, the non-linear voyage of stories.
Saturday September 12th, there is another chance to see Dusty Shoes at the Carrefour Theatre in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. This evening there will be a talk back where you will have an opportunity to ask questions to me, the actor/writer, about the creative process I undertook or about the content of the piece.
Hope to see you there…. and if not there, maybe in a town near you sometime soon! (Dusty Shoes is “bookable”)
.. DUSTY SHOES opens in Prince Edward Island along with Amy and Rachel Beck!! You coming out? Prepare to meet Madame Rouge (she won’t let you off the hook) and see Trilby’s journey in her shoes… or is Madame Rouge in Trilby’s shoes? And.. just why ARE they dusty?

TICKETS for August 29th featuring the Popalopalots: AT THE DOOR
After two intense years of care-giving, I’ve chosen to bring back Dusty Shoes. The idea was to give my father, Barry Jeeves, a gift of my performance this summer, but we didn’t make it. He died on May 10th 2015. However, I was able to read him Dusty Shoes in a quiet little room in the hospital when he was stronger and still sitting in his wheelchair. He was with me. And, I brought him Madame Rouge to hold onto last year. He liked her. A lot. 🙂
Here I am… Ready to launch a blog on my newest, scariest venture yet.
I’m going to blog about my journey with creating my first one woman show that will have to be ready for performance July 10 for the Regina Fringe Festival. From there, I will go to the Edmonton Fringe – August 15-25.
I will blog about my comings and goings. You can read them, or not. But it will be good for me! My play is called Dusty Shoes and it’s about an inner voice getting pissed at a woman who isn’t following her heart. The woman “crashes” and realizes if she doesn’t listen to her inner voice and follow her calling she won’t heal. The inner voice is a unique bouffon.
