What people are saying!

Regina Fringe social media liaison, Sabrina Cataldo:

“Dusty Shoes is a hidden gem of this year’s fringe. The colourful and outlandish Madame Rouge interacts with the audience and draws us in from the very beginning with her humour and larger-than-life presence. We soon learn that this buffoon character is the “inner voice from a past life” of Trilby Jeeves, a woman who must come to terms with……a disability that changes the trajectory of her life. The different stages of Jeeves’ physical and emotional journey are tied together with a shoe motif – from sneakers to high heels to motorcycle boots – culminating in an unexpected reveal. The show ends with a feeling of joy and freedom that stays with you as you leave the theatre.

The first few shows drew small crowds due to their place on the schedule, so buzz has not grown around this show at the level it deserves. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a funny and sweet show this weekend. And bring a few friends with you. You won’t regret it.”

The LeaderPost, Regina, Irene Seiberling:

“Kudos to Trilby Jeeves for the “world premiere” of her one-woman show, Dusty Shoes, at Regina International Fringe Theatre Festival last night.

It’s well worth checking out! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dusty Shoes is being performed at the MacKenzie Art Gallery theatre several more times: 3 p.m. today, 5:15 p.m. Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

Jeeves, who comes to us from West Vancouver, performed in front of a small, but appreciative audience last night. Her biggest fan was her supportive partner, film director Peter Marshall, who hails from Regina.

This was my first visit to Regina’s Fringe Festival, I must admit. It was such a positive experience, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. I encourage you to take in some independent live theatre. The festival runs until Sunday.”

RADIO-CANADA INTERVIEW WITH MICHEL LALONDE (en Francais): JOUR DE PLAINE, REGINA

Derek Finnik, actor/writer, Regina:

“A MUST SEE SHOW at the Regina Fringe Festival (and at the Edmonton Fringe, Aug. 15-25th) Funny, captivating, moving, engaging (what will you do when Madame Rouge asks you des questions??), and entertaining for the entire 60 minutes! Just go see it!”

Michel Lalonde, Senior Variety Producer, Radio-Canada, Saskatchewan:

“I was thoroughly impressed with Trilby Jeeves’ Dusty Shoes.  The seasoned actor, who plays herself, as she faces her alter ego, Madame Rouge, deftly exploits the age-old challenge of self-realization.  The script is never preachy but does venture into the realm of the spectator’s inner feelings of self-doubt  in his or her own personal quest.  Madame Rouge’s interactions with the audience are just edgy enough and in the end make the character lovable through her irreverent spunkiness.  It was quite obvious that Trilby is very familiar with her subject matter as she quite adroitly wades into the ethics of modern medicine and the expectations and pressure that people facing a physical challenge must live up to.”

“Her use of props, music and sound effects are well-balanced and give the audience just enough to make the experience authentic.  For her first stab at a self-directed, original production, Trilby Jeeves has done a masterful job with Dusty Shoes and leaves the audience yearning for the return of Madame Rouge and more of her musings and antics.”

Lise, audience member, Regina Fringe:

FANTASTIC BILINGUAL PERFORMANCE!!!! I attended your show in Regina, Sunday afternoon. It really touched my heart and ….. I thoroughly enjoyed the M&M’s that you gave me too! -:)”
