I'm a freelance writer living in Perth.
I enjoy gardening and films. I have appeared in several local short films.
A happily forever after-life
Would you bare all about your family, especially your own 96-year-old grandmother who passed away over a year ago and turn it into a comedy act? Well, this young Canadian did and with an important message to tell the world.
Dion Arnold from Edmonton in Alberta, Canada now travels the world with a mission. But back to his grandmother, who inspired him to do what he does today. Dion gives his family background but the whole show centres around his feisty grandmother who always did things her way. "Gemes", as she was known to others, was the queen of bridge in her town.
To find out what happened to his grandmother, you will have to attend his show before it heads off to Adelaide to continue its important message.
This audiovisual presentation is interspersed with anecdotes from his grandmother whose favourite saying was "...anyways".
Though he is telling the story of his grandmother, his show is dedicated to Jack, who suffered from dementia but could not access MAID.
Currently performing as part of Fringe Perth, the shows continue daily until 9 February at the Studio Startup Basement. All shows start at 4.30pm and tickets are from $10 for kids to $20 for adults.
The Studio Startup Basement is located in Grand Lane at 143 Barrack Street in the city.
