Magic Unicorn Island Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

                Jayson McDonald returns to Saskatoon Fringe with a new one man show from Black Sheep Theatre's "Magic Unicorn Island. Coming from Ottawa, McDonalds's shows have been a staple of the fringe circuits and have garnered him high praise such as past productions "Giant Invisible Robot"

                McDonald's new show is a tour de force of what happens when children have their own nation and how the world reacts to it.

                McDonald plays multiple characters in this 70 minute show  with an electric stage presence that juggles comedy, drama, politics with a razor edge  wit and satire as McDonald effortlessly switches from children, to news anchor to politicians, changing vocal tones and body language as easily one would try a new glove.

                The show is funny yet poignant as McDonald who wrote the play tackles character moments well, including a scene that goes very dark and raw as one of McDonald's characters sprouts off racial epithets  to a child.  

                Magic Unicorn Island is a strong polished show that not only is anchored by McDonald's strong stage presence but razor sharp dialogue.  McDonald  shares a comfort with the audience as you would when you catch up with an old friend or acquaintance.

                See Magic Unicorn Island, McDonald will take you on an engaging roller coaster.
