Stage veterans Michael Armstrong andDrew Staniland will be reprising the roles that earned them an awardfor Best Acting at ACToberfest.CHAINMAIL BIKINIIt's a week before opening at Tim's gaming store and his investor isthreatening to bail, his bathroom is flooding, and his best friend hasdenounced him in the local paper.

Chainmail Bikini was first presented at the 2007Calgary Fringe Festival, where it received four stars by the CalgaryHerald. Stephen Hunt described it as "well-written" and "thoughtful" -"Boychuk has a nice way of weaving his deadpan wit into a pot that'sbrimming with social issues."
