Upon dying, Jeff awakes in a bar full of ancient gods that will weigh his browser history against a feather to determine if he was a good person or face damnation. But as his trial proceeds, we quickly realize that his judge, Anubis, has an agenda of her own and all may not be as it seems. Can her long-suffering butler Thoth keep the trial on-track, even as she is forced to channel the important spirits of Jeff’s life? And what is Jeff willing to give up for a chance at closure? Equal parts 'American Gods' and 'Twelve Angry Men,' FEATHERWEIGHT asks: what effect does our online life have on others? Will Jeff's browser history damn him? Would it damn you?

Featuring an all-star cast and crew of past Fringe favorites, Brouhaha returns to the festival after its sold-out, Best of Fringe 2016 production Bright Lights (NNNNN) to the venue it first brought to the 2013 Fringe with its immersive smash-hit We Are The Bomb.
This festival also marks the first adult production by Shakey-Shake and Friends playwright and Brouhaha co-founder Tom McGee (writer and director), with Kat Sandler acting as producer and dramaturge. The production stars Michael Musi (CBC’s Kim’s Convenience, Brouhaha’s Late Night, Liver, Retreat) as Jeff, Dora Award Winner* (and recent nominee**) Kat Letwin (VideoCabaret’s Confederation I&II**, Chasse Galerie*, Brouhaha’s Late Night, Retreat) as the long-suffering attendant Thoth, and Amanda Cordner (Penelope in Hart House’s upcoming The Penelopiad, Body So Fluorescent, and Shakey-Shake’s Twelfth Night...A Puppet Epic!) as the suicidal god of judgment Anubis.

Doors open at 7:00pm, show begins at 8:00.
Tickets available in advance at FringeToronto.com, during the festival at the Box Office at Bathurst and Dundas, or at the door. All sales are final, no late entry.
