The Homemaker

HomemakerPresented by Hectik Theatre, The Homemaker is a one-woman cabaret created and performed by Laura Anne Harris (pictured).

Apparently based on family folklore related to a great aunt, it recounts the story of a French-Canadian woman from Albertville, SK named Janette Pettitpas and her struggle to combat a drinking problem while also fulfilling her duties as a wife and homemaker in the pre-feminist era. A dollop of Catholic guilt gets thrown into the mix as well.

The Homemaker premiered at the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival last summer. The cabaret will be presented at New Dance Horizons’s performance space at 2207 Harvey St.  from May 7-10 at 8 p.m. Tickets are adults $25 and students $15, and more information can be found at Hectik’s website.

  1. Out of the many there were those earnest few who wanted to delve further
    into the mysteries of life and they were subsequently invited into Jesus’ secret school.
    Destruction warlocks are scary because their burst damage is insane, and they can stun
    as well as fear and possibly secude (with the succubus pet) and
    silence (with the felhunter pet). 900 lines hawk their wares,
    albeit in somewhat garish fashion: promises to change your life, find that right person, win the
    lottery.
