“A GARDEN OF MARIPOSIES’

Stories by and about Stephen Leacock with Voyageur Storytelling

As part of his Canadian tour of 1936, Stephen Leacock spoke to the Canadian Club of Victoria. It may safely be surmised that he reduced even that formidable audience to fits of helpless laughter. Voyageur Storytelling may well repeat that feat as they bring their Stephen Leacock “Re-Tour” to the Canadian Club of Victoria’s November luncheon.
Stephen Leacock’s humorous sketches take many shapes and sizes, spanning human experience across much of its considerable diversity. From finance to farming, from fishing to falling in love, from drinking to dressing, from politics to poetry, from religion to reading, from teaching to learning, from working to loafing, from war to peace, from college to cottage, he hammered away on the funny bones of his readers with the absurdities of modern life while they begged for more. The best of these stories are timeless—Canadian oral literature at its most colourful.
From such as these Leslie Robbins-Conway and Paul Conway of Voyageur Storytelling have woven an unique experience of fine Canadian storytelling art, both spoken and sung.

The luncheon is open to the public. Reservations required by November 17.
Tickets: Members $28, Guests $33
