Comic, poet and reformed psychiatric nurse Rob Gee presents a user-friendly guide to losing the plot. Fruitcake charts a night shift on an acute psychiatric ward, seen through the eyes of a jaded nurse who hears the voice of God – a kindly Jamaican woman – who gives him ten benevolent commandments to help him through the shift; and life. 'A witty, skilful storyteller… Gee has pitched it perfectly' Chortle, UK 5 Stars 'Hilarious... a one-man thespian army.' CBC, Canada 4 1/2; Stars 'A tour de force!' Victoria Times, Canada 4 Stars 'One show you’d be crazy to miss!' Toronto Eye 4 1/2; Stars 'A first-rate show.' Calgary Herald 4 1/2; Stars 'Hilarious... poignant... life-affirming... joyful!' Uptown Magazine, Canada. 'Terrifically well-written… the kind of Fringe performer you pray you’ll discover.' Orlando Sentinel. 'This is a man who stared into the abyss and saw it wink back at him.' The Ubyssey, Vancouver. 'An unforeseen highlight, a convulsively funny and surprisingly moving tribute to humanity’s collective psychosis.' Minnesota Examiner.
