Mail Ordered

– Shanice Stanislaus

The “Pick of the Fringe” of the 2022 Vancouver Fringe Festival is coming to Winnipeg!
Lila, a poor village girl, arrives in Canada looking for a husband who’s just her type – any man who can buy her for $100,000. Featuring a team from Singapore and Calgary, this interactive comedy delivers hilarious Asian melodrama tropes and parody.
Join us for a show audiences have described as “wildly funny” and “delightfully interactive” as Lila showcases her impressive dance moves, charming giraffe jokes and extreme domestic skills.
Who knows… you might even leave with your very own mail ordered bride!
Created and Performed by Shanice Stanislaus (Singapore)
Directed by Aaron Coates (Canada)
Music by GRYD Studio (Singapore)

  1. SO SO GOOD!!!!! One of the best fringe shows I’ve seen! Brilliantly acted, absolutely hilarious!

  2. A bit cringy (in the style of Borat), but pretty funny. There’s a neat twist ending I wasn’t expecting.

    I didn’t think the performer’s voice carried well and I missed a couple of jokes because I couldn’t hear them.

  3. Hilarious. Flat out just great. I had read previous reviews here but thought to give it a shot and now purely question a few of the comments. How did they not get it! I did not answer the question In good conscience but sure made me think. Really glad we decided to give it a go.

    Brilliantly done

  4. Painfully unaware. The show says satire but there is complete lack of sensitivity and understanding concerning the subject matter. The actor is awkward and whatever message exsists is completely overshadowed by the contant jabs meant to be funny. I walked out of the show 30 mins in. Didn’t seem worth sitting through something that made fun of many girls & women’s current reality.

  5. Saw this last night, by and by the best show I have seen in a long time. I gasped in delight at the end and my anxiety settled. Six stars all day

  6. Fantastic performance! An absolute must see! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ xo from the married couple

  7. We crazy good! Main character was Uber charismatic and had the audience fully engaged within minutes. I understand why it’s won awards. Loved it loved it loved it

  8. This was cringeworthy. The best way to describe it is imagine you, as an audience member tried to walk to the exit, and the performer actually ran across the stage to confront you… awkward.
