"Swindles, Scams and Snake Oil" December 13, 2012

Looking for something a bit different for the Christmas season?  “Swindles, Scams and Snake Oil” is a light-hearted storytelling performance in the “Speaking Out, Speaking In” series at the 4th Stage of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa (See

This December 13th show features true and fictional tales of con artists, swindles, and offers that are (literally) too good to be true.  The show includes two of my own stories as well as a couple of original songs composed by me.

For this show I share the stage with two talented storytellers, Mary Wiggin and Kathryn Hunt, both veterans of the 4th Stage series.

Tickets are available at the NAC Box Office for $20.  Students can get a discount through the Live Rush program (if seats are available) and seniors can get discounts on a package of four shows in the series.  If you don’t mind paying a processing fee of $5.50 per ticket, you can also buy tickets online at

Whether I see you there or not, I hope you have a very happy Christmas and a fulfilling New Year, rich in songs and stories!
