As part of their mission to bring Fringe’s most popular shows back for patrons who may have missed them the first time around, Orlando Fringe presents six shows by two award-winners from last year’s festival. Paul Strickland and Stewart Huff each present three shows, making up a sort of Redneck Weekend of inventively staged storytelling. Falling more into the big-fish/shaggy-dog school of exaggeration, Strickland performs Ain’t True and Uncle False
(“learn how they made black-eyed peas by punching green peas!”), Papa Squat’s Store of Sorts
and Tales Too Tall for Trailers
; Huff, a self-described “liberal Southern road comic,” ruminates on the South’s absurdities in Donating Sperm to My Sister’s Wife
, Darwin Versus Rednecks
and Sense Ain’t Common
. With six approximately one-hour-long shows to choose from, a different pair each night, it’s up to you to determine just how much down-home wisdom you need: a little or a whole damn lot.
7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, March 24-26 | Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins St. | orlandofringe.org
