In this episode, Allan declared that Katie Volkert’s bio in the program for Hay Fever wins as best bio ever. You tell him if he’s right:

Katie was born in the woods of Northern Ontario, and later migrated to the immensely rural Manitoulin Island. Surprisingly, given this history, she is neither a black bear, nor a white-tailed deer; she is a human woman with slightly more theatre experience than either of these animals. She has performed in short vignettes (Patchwork, Vagina Monologues) and has danced in several productions with Manitoulin Island’s Classic School of Dance (City of Dragonfly, Swan Lake). She is honoured to be part of OLT’s hundred-season history - an opportunity not extended to any forest wildlife.

What people are saying:

  1. Chantale says:

    OLT sold Hayfever as a farce and it is not a farce. Guess they thought it better marketing. Comedy of ill manners…plain and simple. Director didn’t see it as a farce either..i should know i live with him.
