Pt. II: Outside, in the Laneway, under the Stars

Hard Times (Canada)

Pt. II: Outside, in the Laneway, under the Stars  


Three-time Prague Fringe Award nominee John Arthur Sweet makes his fifth appearance in Prague with an autobiographical two-part mélange of theatrical monologue, storytelling and spoken word. The tale of a queer, bullied smalltown kid who found refuge in theatre.

The two parts of the show are stand-alone and will play on alternate days: Part I (Childhood) and Part II (Adulthood).

Reviews of 2019's RUNNING TO SAINT SEBASTIAN (Prague Fringe and Montreal Fringe): 

'A subtle diamond in the fringe rough... clever and strange solo show by a seasoned creator and performer' (Montreal Theatre Hub)

'Sweet doesn't waste a word, each image is perfectly crafted to get his story across and his voice wouldn't be out of place in a bedtime audiobook' (Prague Youth Theatre)

'John is a charming and engaging performer with just enough humour to alleviate the darkest moments' (Michael Calcott's Fringey Bits)
