Pun Pals

It's a normal, awful day at work for Rosey and Gilda. Then, they discover they can only speak in puns. Chaos ensues.

Tommy Grimly's plays have been performed in New York City, Washington DC, Long Island, and Vancouver. He's currently pursuing his MFA in Creative Writing at The University of British Columbia. He doesn't have a cat. But one day, he hopes to have a cat.


kathryn robinson - gilda

Kathryn’s goal as an artist is to work with diversity in different mediums (theatre, film, radio etc.), to tell stories and for those stories to have an impact on audiences. She has been training professionally as an actor for 5+ years and recently returned from studies at Rose Bruford College in London, UK. After returning she founded the society 'Artists for Mental Health' and continues to fight the stigma on mental illness. Her belief is to leave your ego at the door, be present, and support the inspiring people around you!
