and Uncle False, March 26-28, as part of year-round Fringe offerings through Fringe Presents and Theatre Wire, the theatre subscription focused on independent theatre.

Paul first charmed Vancouver audiences in 2017, winning the Volunteer Choice Award and being named as a runner-up for the Georgia Straight Critics’ Choice Award on top of his Best of Fest awards from the Calgary and Cincinnati Fringes. This tall tale-teller’s gift for spinning heartfelt yet hilarious stories has led to rave reviews from across the Fringe circuit.

Made up of stories he wishes he could have told his grandfather, Paul takes audiences to a place “just off the coast of factual” and introduces them to his friends and family at the Big Fib Trailer Park Cul-de-Sac: Will Perjure and his grandfather Don T. Perjure, Rue Morhazit, Fay and Bri Cation, Ma and Pa Ganda, and of course, Ain’t True and Uncle False.

From stories about how joggers were created, to how almost everyone but Will Perjure worked at the Big Fib Pea-Punching Plant and more, Ain’t True and Uncle False promises an hour of stories and songs that feel peculiar, safe, and full of love.

Tickets for performances on March 26, 27, and 28 are available now and are $25—or save 20% when you purchase tickets to three or more Theatre Wire Package shows online at

Venue: The Nest, 1398 Cartwright St, Vancouver, BC (in Granville Island)
