“It’s Awesome…Get Around Me is not just worth seeing, it’s necessary to experience.”
- Mooney on Theatre, Toronto


From the star of last year’s hit solo show Drag Queen Stole My Dress (Montreal Fringe 2014 Best Script Nominee) and the 2013 award winning show Love in the Time of Time Machines (Frigid Best of Fest & Audience Choice; Montreal Fringe Best Visual Identity) comes a new solo show tackling one of today’s most pressing and talked about issues. While playing Aussie Rules Football for the Canadian National team in Melbourne, Australia; Gillian was sexually assaulted at a Team Canada sponsored party. The attack was encouraged by various members of the Canadian Men’s Team. AFL Canada has refused to take any action against the guilty parties for the past year.

Get Around Me is a heartfelt and hilarious personal account of one woman’s journey into athleticism, and Aussie Rules Football; and the startling truths she uncovers there. A powerful story of strength and heartbreak, this is one footy player who won't take her sexual assault lying down!
