Buzz well-deserved – a def fave for me so far: “Help Yourself.” Such impressive writing by Kat Sandler. See it.

Theatre Brouhaha’s Help Yourself by Kat Sandler, co-created by Daniel Pagett, has been selected for Best of Fringe, which will extend performances of Help Yourself by four shows, taking place here, at the Toronto Centre for the Arts July 18th – August 3rd.
“The cast, crew and creative team are stupidly excited to have received Best of Fringe,” says writer/director Kat Sandler. “Many of us have been volunteering for the Fringe or producing, writing and acting in Fringe shows for many years. Fringe is such an incredible opportunity for a young company like us to showcase our work, and Best of Fringe means we’ll get to reach an even larger audience!”
“I saw a show called Help Yourself on the weekend. This young writer, Kat Sandler, is just a fantastic theatre writer. This thing could be a huge play. It’s just fantastic.”

Help Yourself is the story of 35-year-old Donny who is in the business of clearing consciences. Audiences learn that for a hefty sum Donny will help clients justify to themselves their desired immoral actions. Donny’s life is great – fancy condo, beautiful girlfriend and swanky dinners – until a new client sparks a gut-wrenching, high-stakes session that have left Toronto Fringe Festival audiences wondering if breaking the rules is ever worth the payoff.
The cast includes Tosha Doiron (Luminato Festival hit, Habit), Daniel Pagett (Theatre Brouhaha’s LOVESEXMONEY), and up-and-comer Tim Walker, who was in the cast of last year’s Fringe smash hit Horse.
“Crackling dialogue…A rocket ride through tough questions (and flip answers) about what keeps us good even when we want to be bad.”
– Sean Davidson, NOW
