Reviews - Fringe 2019

Fairytale Femdom

By Julian Nicholson
Published July 25, 2019

Fairytale Femdom from Squeeky Wheel Productions in Toronto is an extraordinary piece of theatre. Actress Caitlin Robson starts the show on stage, gets changed into a dominatrix outfit and then bares her soul.

In 50 minutes of spontaneous storytelling, she takes us through her life as a Switch, which is someone who engages in BDSM as both a Domme and a sub. Mostly she seems to be a Domme, and she tells us stories of her clients and co-workers, revealing the humanity that is, sometimes literally, under the mask.

She tells of her broken heart trying to find someone who will love her as she is, and the moments of joy when that seems to have happened. It is one of the most open, honest, heart wrenching, tragic, fascinating performances I’ve ever seen at The Fringe or elsewhere. There’s not much else to say about this performance except go and see it, it’s a must see. Don’t take the kiddies.

Julian Nicholson is an actor, writer, and director and has participated in the Hamilton Fringe for many years. Julian has been acting since he attended McMaster in the 1980s, and has extensive experience in professional, alternative, and little theatre. He is also a full member of ACTRA.
