A woman says she hopes Edmonton's Fringe theatre festival puts a greater emphasis on consent after a performer pulled her husband on stage and started to undress him, making him so upset that he called police.
Vikki Wiercinski and her husband have been avid festival-goers over the years and were taking in Wednesday evening's Late Night Cabaret, a racy variety show, with some friends.
Right before intermission, she said, Victoria comedian Mike Delamont — in character as "God is a Scottish Drag Queen" — started lip-synching to "Let's Get It On," pulled her husband from the audience, took hold of him from behind and unbuttoned his shirt, exposing his bare chest to an audience of 100 or so people.
Jim also reported it as an assault to the Edmonton Police Service, but Wiercinski said officers were not receptive.https://www.timescol...sent-1.23924329
