VICTORIA, BC – Intrepid Theatre invites you to celebrate your inner geek with our 4-day Charles Ross-a-thon. Back by popular demand, Charles Ross is performing not one, but two of his world-famous one-man shows as a fundraiser for Intrepid Theatre on November 3-7 at the Metro Studio. From Off-Broadway in New York to London’s West End, Ross has sold out his one-man cult hit shows across the globe and gathered critical acclaim along the way. ‘A total theatrical genius,’ CBC Radio (Five Stars), he is ‘funnier than you could possibly imagine’ (Spin Magazine).
One-Man Lord of the Rings takes you on a journey through J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece in 60 frenetic and entertaining minutes. Ross does it all in this hilarious, epic one-man show – booming special effects, riveting stage fights and harrowing rescues. Similarly, his first show, One-Man Star Wars recreates the magic of the Star Wars Trilogy in a ‘finely tuned minimalist feat’ (Charleston City Paper) of brilliant solo theatrics. These shows are appropriate for all ages. Partial proceeds go to One-Man Lord of the Rings and One-Man Star Wars are written and performed by Charles Ross.

Peter Marks writes: Let me confess that I can’t tell whether I’m a fan of “The Lord of the Rings”: I’ve never read the books or seen the movies. (Yes, we aliens live among you.) But it must be saying something that even a Tolkien agnostic can chuckle over Charles Ross’s “One Man Lord of the Rings,” his virtuoso encapsulation of the film trilogy.

I suspect that few Tolkien fans out there realise that hidden within the Rings trilogy are references to Elvis, Edwin Starr and Johnny Cash. They are easy to miss but thanks to Charles Ross, the Canadian master of the one man movie genre their true place is restored within the epic which he manages to condense to an hour and ten minutes. We could have enjoyed this show five years ago had it not been for a legal wrangle with the movie makers which was only resolved last year just in time for the Edinburgh Festival where Ross was a sell out.
