"Each Sandra Shamas production was more of a hit than its predecessor... autobiographical and puncturing gender stereotypes... Sandra's work is universal. Audiences flock to her shows, that also contain a big slice of warmth and compassion... To her fans, she is a ferocious, funny...superhero". -- Saturday Night

"Sandra Shamas kept the audience roaring..". -- Toronto Star

Sandra Shamas is a brilliant comedic storyteller who pokes fun at her own (and our own) foibles in an earthy, engaging, honest and deadly funny way, never losing sight of the fundamental importance of loyalty, affection, and love. Here, for the first time on the page, are her three shows.

In Sandra Shamas: A Trilogy Of Performances Shamas uses hilarious insight to explore and expose all the important issues facing the modern woman: the construction and disintegration of men's underwear; how to neck near a glowing slag heap; dressing for a night at the local bar; and buying a wedding dress on a budget. Ranging from dating services to burying a parent, nothing escapes her scathing wit, not even herself.

On buying a house: "We did it fight: we viewed the house at night, and we bought it on the strength that it had a walk-in closet".

Sandra Shamas: A Trilogy Of Performances is a re-crafted transcription of the three one woman shows that have made Sandra a cult heroine wherever she performed.
