Stay Away from My Boat

ITSAZOO Productions presents Stay Away From My Boat @$$hole, a brand new site-specific show developed with The Only Animal as part of The Fringe’s inaugural Onsite Program.

The show is performed in the water, lit by flashlights, as the audience watches from Alder Bay Bridge above. A radio broadcast sets the scene. The end is nigh. War is rampant. Vancouver is sinking. One man finds solace in a small boat. His floating utopia is soon threatened by the presence of a mysterious stranger. What does this man want? And what will he do to get it?

Stay Away from My Boat

Stay Away From My Boat @$$hole is an absurdist satire inspired by silent film, clowns, radio dramas and the apocalypse.

ITSAZOO Productions is a critically acclaimed, Jessie nominated Vancouver based theatre company, well known and loved for their outdoor summer productions (Robin Hood, The Road To Canterbury, Grimm Tales) and innovative black box shows (Death of a Clown, Casualties of Progress) both of which feature a strong emphasis on scathing satire, witty, rapid dialogue, and visually stunning spectacle.


I interviewed Stay Away From My Boat @$$hole’s David Benedict Brown, Colby Wilson, and Director Chelsea Haberlin just shy of their opening night at the Vancouver International Fringe Festival.
