May 18th, 2006. Jules and Fiona, best friends and teenage dirtbags, come to their senses in a park after a night for the ages. With little to no memory of how they got there, they discover the antidote to their fireball-induced amnesia: Ritalin. As they piece together the night in order to find out where the After After Party is, they come to terms with the deeds they have done… Absurd. Outrageous. Over-the-top.

Anyone looking to laugh their pants off need look no further than The After After Party” —Katie Gartlan-Close, Vancouver Presents

Refreshingly lighthearted and funny, The After After Party is a wonderful reprieve for people who are tired of taking themselves—and life in general—far too seriously”—Issie Patterson, Vancouver Weekly

[Katey Hoffman and Cheyenne Mabberley] handle its breakneck pacing with all of the assurance of the Canadian snowboarding squad. They also make an excellent—and classic—comic team”—Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca

F**king hilarious…will leave you gasping for breath” —The Georgia Straight

This comic team keeps the surprises coming for an hour. Outrageous? You bet. Unique? Uh, yeah. And gobsmackingly skillful” —Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca

Fearless. Katey Hoffman and Cheyenne Mabberley are comedic goddesses who appear to be afraid of nothing… Forget Saunders and French, meet Hoffman and Mabberley”—Mark Robins, Vancouver Presents

This endlessly quotable two-woman show left audiences face sore from laughing and hearts full” —Erika Thorkelson, The Province

The stakes are so high for these characters…That’s what’s fun about playing them. I remember being a teenager and thinking that every party, every social interaction, was the biggest deal of my life. So it’s fun poking fun at that, but also finding the real vulnerability behind it”—Katey Hoffman, in interview with Postmedia [Read it here!]

We’re two women on stage that are not following the tropes of women we saw growing up. We’re not being attractive. We’re breaking the mould of how women are seen on stage…Coming of age stories about women usually revolve around dudes, and love, and romance, and being beautiful…we’re not anything like that”—Cheyenne Mabberley, in interview with The Vancouver Arts Review [Read it here]
