Buffering – Toronto Fringe 2012 Press Release

From Press Release

Buffering….Steeped in Convention. Tied up in Copyright

A princess/minor blogging sensation, a court jester with an MBA and mild case of OCD, and a retired child actor turned wicked witch, form an unlikely (and unwitting) team to save a supposedly handsome prince and restore order to a kingdom mired in copyright disputes and contractual fine print. 

Presented as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival, buffering… is full of talent from Toronto’s impressive comedy scene. Actor Julia Hladkowicz from MuchMusic’s Video on Trial was also a finalist for Canada’s Next Top Comic; co-writer/actor Shauna Wootton is a sketch comic/improviser who performs with the The Bad Dog Theatre Company; actor AJ Vaage won a Canadian Comedy Award for his work on YTV’s That’s So Weird; and there are reports that co-writer Amy Cunningham made a joke in the ‘80s (something about slapstick and the fall of communism).

We call it an homage to the fairy tale, but the cease and desist letters just call it “unauthorized.” In any case, leave all your good ideas at home and come witness as we trespass on intellectual property to tell the story of this magical(ish) land and hopefully figure out the moral before incurring exorbitant royalty fees.
