XOXO is heading to Stratford!

Two Juliets, one city to take over.


You guys, you guys, you guys! We are 100% totally for sure no-kidding-around DEFINITELY GOING TO BE ACTORS DOING A SHOW IN STRATFORD, ONTARIO THIS SUMMER. Say whaaaaat? Here's the nitty gritty:

"We've all heard that nice guys finish last, but what about nice girls? Love and lust, kisses and kicks - XOXO runs the relationship gauntlet. Who will make it out alive? And more importantly, who will make out with anyone? Ever? Again?
"

Two Juliets presents XOXO: The Relationship Show, an exciting comedy cabaret taking you through the highs and lows of dating in the modern world. Based on our 25 minute Hamilton Fringe hit and featuring over 30 minutes of new material, XOXO: The Relationship Show will be premiering at SpringWorks: indie theatre & arts festival in Stratford, Ontario this May.

Last time, people liked it:

"Two girls, an open studio, and a lot of heart, XOXO is not any run-of-the-mill comedy. [...] I would love to see these two girls in a show again."
- Katie Stoneman, Hamilton Fringe Festival Reviewer

"The duo of Two Juliets (Meghan Chalmers and Franny McCabe-Bennett) put on a terrific show in XOXO, a must see comedy about relationship struggles. Like Abbott and Costello, Meghan set up the bottles and Franny knocked them down. The chemistry they exhibited in their performance was flawless. [...] This isn't just a show for women. It's a show for everyone who's been in a relationship."
- Thomas Allen, Hamilton Fringe Festival Reviewer

Coming from Toronto or the GTA?

The Stratford Festival provides a bus from Toronto to Stratford and back again, for just $10 one way or $20 return. During SpringWorks, the bus will leave Toronto at 10am and Stratford at 5pm - since our show will keep you busy at night, there's lots to do in Stratford during the day. Great restaurants, shopping, parks and trails, there is definitely something for everyone in this adorable little city.
"The Stratford Direct Bus will pick us up at 5 right THERE."
Since you trekked all the way down, why not check out some of the other shows in SpringWorks? We even have a sister show, "Confessions of a Readheaded Coffeeshop Girl", created and performed by Rebecca Perry. This show has already toured across Canada and America to rave reviews, don't miss your chance to see it! Joanie Little is a young Jane Goodall making her way through the Coffeeshop jungle and reporting her findings. Watch her grow from seeking to please to pursuing some big, big dreams.

May 13 - 6pm - Factory163 (163 King Street)
