One-man theatre show offers a decidedly Irish take

Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears, a series of skits, will hit the stage at 37 Quebec St. on Nov. 18 and 19
A rendering of the village setting that serves as the backdrop for the one-man show Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears, being performed in Guelph Nov. 18-19.

Lifelong actor Jay Wilson will bring several Irish characters to life in a one-man show in Guelph later this month.

Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears is what he says is a "series of delightful Irish tales."

It will be performed twice at the artBar at 37 Quebec St. on Saturday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 19. The Saturday show starts at 7 p.m., while the Sunday performance will be a 2 p.m. matinee.

The artBar is above Miijidaa, which used to be known as E-Bar.

"These charming characters find themselves in outlandish situations that will amuse and delight you," Wilson, the founder of JayWalking Guelph, added.

The show is based on a book written by a family friend Charlene Herrold.

Tickets are $25 and available through EventBrite.
