Presented by

Director: Janet Kish


Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace


July 4th, 2024 – July 13th, 2024


Our all-star troupe is led by Fringe-favourite Kat Letwin in the title role in an enchanting performance that stretches the conventions of comedy and tragedy, devised theatre, clown, mask and physical theatre. Supported by a cast of professional theatre creators, seasoned Fringe veterans and their adult artist children, Mistila and the Motlies cavort to shake things up… or at least, turn them inside out! The world may seem divisive and frightening, but above all, hope, light and joy still exist. (
