BEST IN WINDSOR FRINGE, 2008

Our 2009 Hamilton Fringe Festival Show Synopsis

"Type 2- A Tragic Comedy" is a sensitive, realistic portrayal of the highs and lows of bipolar disorder. The story chronicles the career of a stand up comic who suffers from the illness. We also see how her periods of depression and mania affect her husband and their relationship. "Type 2" is a rags to riches to reality tale that pulls no punches from either viewpoint. The show features the re-teaming of comic genius Michelle Mainwaring, who won WODL Best Actress award for her dark,dramatic portrayal of Annie Wilkes in "Misery" and her partner in that production Jason Gale who was nominated for best actor. Gale wrote the script, utilizing his research and personal battle with the illness. If you know or think you know someone who is bipolar, you must see this show. * Warning-Strong language and mature content
