Cast of FemFest Production, Launched Announced!

What kind of relationship do you have with your siblings? Do they drive you insane? Do you think of them as your best friend—the person in this world that knows you best? Or is your relationship with your sibling best characterized as somewhere in between—a middle ground of madness.

FemFest production Launched by emerging female playwright, Tyler White, will take you inside the volatility, anger and love that is the sibling relationship. More specifically it explores siblings who have not really launched from their mother’s nest despite being in their forties. Today, we are excited to announce the cast of Launched who will be responsible for adding a little salt and pepper (literally) to the drama that demonstrates it’s never too late to start again. Read on to learn more about the cast of this humour-filled FemFest production that will have its audience members running home and hugging their families!

Cheryl is thrilled to be a part of FemFest and to be cast in Launched.   Cheryl enjoys both film and theatre and is always seeking that next challenge and opportunity to grow as an actor.

Lyle MorrisFeaturing Lyle Morris as Bobby

Bio:

Lyle is excited to be a part of FemFest for the first time in Launched by Tyler White! As of this writing he is in Union Station Theatre’s Shadow Spaces (Venue 11!) in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Between the Fringe and FemFest Lyle is fortunate enough to join the amazing cast for the film Intersection written by Allan Turner. Busy summer! Most of Lyle’s experience is in the indie film genre but he is enjoying being back on stage and looking forward to participating in FemFest this year.

Fun Facts:

1. If you weren’t working in theatre, what would you love to do? Work in film. Easy answer.

2. What is the last book that you read? A Complicated Kindness.

3. What superhero would you be if you could? Or what superpower do you wish you had? Apparently Spiderman is cooler – but I’ve always wanted to be Superman. The strength thing… If I couldn’t do that – I think I’d love to be invisible.

4. Anything else you’d like to add: I’m pumped to be a part of Launched. Can’t wait!
