Canadian cultural icon, comedienne and one of the funniest women on television, Cathy Jones, is set to bring her one-woman show, “Stranger to Hard Work” to the Bancroft Village Playhouse on Thursday, February 18.
In this new show, Cathy shares her unique perspective on a variety of topics from food to money and the troublesome people in her life. It’s a funny, thought provoking look at what she’s learned in life so far.
Master of a thousand voices, Cathy Jones is a Canadian television icon and an audience favourite for an unprecedented 25 years. She’s a founding member of the award-winning comedy troupe CODCO, past member of the Wonderful Grand Band, and has starred in every season of This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Cathy is as popular with her peers as she is with fans, winning an incredible 18 Gemini Awards for her work as a writer and performer. Cathy is a passionate advocate for the environment, a Buddhist, a mother, and a proud grandmother who works and writes from her eco-home on the East Coast.
“This is an incredible opportunity to see this Canadian icon in such an intimate setting,” says Playhouse Manager Heather Brough. “We can’t wait to see Cathy on our stage and because we like to get up close and personal with our favourite Canadian stars, we’ve invited Cathy to do a live audience Q &A right after the performance and she agreed!”
Tickets are now available at Hospice House, Posies, Harvest Moon or online at boxofficebancroft.com for $35 plus HST. This is a licensed event and all proceeds go to the Bancroft Village Playhouse Repair Fund. Please note, this is Cathy Jones so there is an “adult language” advisory in place.
