Crowning Monkey Productions and The St-Ambroise FRINGE de Montreal proudly present the shout-along fan favourite production of last year’s Ottawa Fringe festival Sh!t I’m in Love With You Again. This original musical comedy about sex, love and everything in between is written, directed and stars Ottawa Fringe veteran Rachelle Elie. Musical accompaniment by UK born musician and co-lyricist Luke Jackson. Dramaturgy by Rusty Owen and Paul Hutcheson. Costume and set design by Brandon Kleiman, lighting design by Gavin McDonald.
Sh!t I’m in Love With You Again traverses the many manifestations of love from wide-eyed youthful idealism to first love then to the challenges of marriage and parenthood. Rachelle plays the characters of her life – her parents, her therapist, her lovers and various snotty children to name a few. An autobiographical story that is punctuated by Elie and Jackson’s captivating original tunes. This inspired show articulates the kind of thoughts we’ve all had in our relationships but are usually hesitant to express. A glamorous set and glittery costume
changes also add to the story and reveal the next challenge of love.
Elie has toured four original one-woman shows across the Canadian fringeand has performed stand up and clown in the U.S. and Australia. She won an Outstanding Comedy Award at The Ottawa Fringe Festival for her one person show JOE: The Perfect Man, directed by Adam Lazarus.
