We've Come From Away (Toronto) is a must see at this year's Fringe Festival. The cast are all members of Not Oasis is an award-winning sketch, comedy troupe that formed in 2015 at The Second City training centre. And, that fortuitous meet up has had hilarious consequences.

The fast-paced, non-stop antics of the six comedians covers everything from riding the subway and buying property in Toronto to experiencing new baby syndrome; modern day confessional visits; the impacts of being a woman turning 40; millennials having less sex; and aging parents unable to navigate cell phones.

A strong cast with great material making use of minimalistic sets, few props and sparse costume changes lets the audience focus on the fast-paced, non-stop humour.

Doreen Nicoll is a feminist and a member of several community organizations working diligently to end poverty, hunger and gendered violence.
