Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower

Fresh from its wild success at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Maggie Gallant's hilarious, endlessly surprising Hot Dogs at the Eiffel Tower comes to HPT September 5 - October 5.

In their five-star review the CBC said, "As a performer, Gallant sparkles like the Eiffel Tower's light show. She's energy and presence personified; warm and quick-witted and completely present. Love for life—and for Freddie Mercury—radiates off of her.” The Winnipeg Free Press called it "captivating. full of twists and turns."

What kind of parent KNITS their daughter a wool swimsuit? Or gives her a briefcase for her 11th birthday? Or keeps her in the dark about where she came from? British comedian Maggie Gallant shares her childhood embarrassments and adulthood discoveries as she unleashes a Pandora's Box of hope, lies, and un très magnifique French Papa!

House

The long-awaited, six-shows-only return of this one-man show starring Ken Webster, originally produced by HPT in 1999, 2001, and 2009. Victor, the lost soul inhabiting Daniel MacIvor's dark and furiously funny piece, takes you on a whirlwind tour of the offices, circus tents, supermarkets, Ramada Inns, sewers, dreams, and houses that compose the hallucinatory landscape of his life. The Austin American Statesman: "Roaring laughter one moment and stunned silence the next. Webster knows how to grab an audience and hold them until right before they burst. . . . House is a brilliantly crafted, imaginative work that Webster takes to the edge of perfection in his portrayal."
