Balls of Yarns

by Paul Strickland

In a strange town where creaky doors sing with you, libraries are separate from “truth-braries” and extraordinary stories are shared through yarn and tin can, an ominous lurking evil threatens to make things normal. Not on Paul Strickland’s watch.


“With imagination and heart, Strickland shows us the life-changing magic of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.” - The Winnipeg Free Press

“If you are prepared to appreciate “peculiar and unusual beauty” — and why not? — snap up your tickets now.” -



Paul Strickland has been performing at Fringe Festivals since 2010 when his one-man comedy, A Brighter Shade of Blue first launched him into the world of Fringe. More recently he is known for his Trailer Park Trilogy (Ain’t True & Uncle False - 2013, Papa Squat - 2014, and Tales Too Tall for Trailers - also playing at this year’s Winnipeg Fringe Festival). Strickland’s shows have been thrice-chosen by the Orlando Sentinel for Best of Fest (2010, 2013, 2018), and have won “Pick Of The Fringe” at Cincy Fringe (2013, 2017), and “Best of Fest” at Pittsburgh Fringe (2015), Calgary Fringe (2016), Saskatoon Fringe (2017), and Orlando Fringe (2018).
