Vancouver Fringe and Paul Strickland Presents present:
Ain't True & Uncle False
March 26-28, 2020
The Nest, 1398 Cartwright St, Vancouver, BC
When Paul Strickland was fifteen his dying grandfather asked him to make up a story to distract him from his pain. This series of hilarious and heart-felt tall tales, set in the mythical American South, are the stories Paul wishes he could have told his grandfather way back when. Paul takes us to a delightful place "just off the coast of factual" called Big Fib Trailer Park Cul-de-Sac, and introduces us to Will Perjure and his grandfather Don T. Perjure, Rue Morhazit, Fay and Bri Cation, Ma and Papa Ganda, and, of course, Ain’t True and Uncle False, who are Paul’s “family” in Big Fib.
Best of Fest winner at the Calgary Fringe and Cincinnati Fringe.
