Audiences will discover the answers to life’s hard questions can be comical, sad and sometimes a surprise. Inspired by her own midlife crisis, Toronto artist Angela Matich says, “I set-off to write, direct and produce a play to explore the controversial issues women face in midlife. Regardless of race, religion or even sexual preference, all woman have shared experiences with the themes of love, sex, work, family and the question of having kids.”
Straight in from Cyprus, the talented Cypriot-Canadian actor Christina Marouchou takes to the Toronto stage for this interesting one-woman 90-minutes show—Grande Midlife Mocha Latte. Ms. Marouchou gives a powerful performance playing multiple characters from the humorous often cursing-mad Roxy who has recently separated from her husband to Helen who just learned her unborn baby is with Down Syndrome. Christina carefully reveals the soft underbelly of each of the five different characters—straight, gay, single, married, pregnant— endearing them to the audience as they go through the full experience of the midlife journey.
Rated: 18+ for sexual content and swearing
“Marouchou transforms herself completely from one woman to the next. (…) the result is a complex patchwork quilt of women’s experiences that is funny, moving and relatable to anyone.”

“Christina Marouchou did a tremendous job developing chemistry with the audience and the unseen auxiliary characters. Sometimes, I felt like I wasn’t watching a show, but rather catching up with an old friend. It was the way Marouchou would maintain eye contact and make you feel the emotional tensions of her characters. (…) Throughout Grande Midlife Mocha Latte I laughed and cried. I felt hopeful, devastated, awe-struck, and disappointed. In the end, I felt great joy and a deep appreciation for life in general. It’s a touching play that represents the best that the Toronto Fringe Festival has to offer.”
