Delirium – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

DeliriumFrom press release: 

An autobiographical storytelling show about love, death, and butterflies at this year’s Toronto Fringe.

In a love story that follows the Monarch butterfly as it travels from Canada to Mexico, New York storyteller Martin Dockery explores life’s greatest mystery: its end. From a marriage proposal in the Toronto airport, to an absurdist restaurant in the desert, and from the loss of a loved one in a Brooklyn apartment, to the final stop on Earth’s most epic animal migration, Dockery searches for meaning in loss, while both falling in love and falling apart.

Delirium is Dockery’s 8th and newest storytelling show, and it was awarded Best Solo Show at the 2017 Orlando Fringe Festival. Previous shows at the Toronto Fringe include Wanderlust (2009), Bursting Into Flames (2011), and The Dark Fantastic (2014). Dockery has also written and will be performing in Moonlight After Midnight with his wife at this year Toronto Fringe in the Tarragon Theatre Mainspace.
