Sandra's back in Ottawa in her fifth hit show, and we couldn't be happier! Wit's End II: Heart's Desire is the hugely successful sequel to Sandra Shamas' acclaimed Wit's End (which enjoyed a three-week sold-out run at the National Arts Centre in September 1999).

Ensconced on her seemingly tranquil farm, Sandra's education on matters rural continues. Thrown into the mix this time are a number of issues for consideration, such as the endless quest for understanding, the sudden onslaught of a 40th birthday and, not least, lessons on the proper use of a chainsaw.

With her extraordinary wit and unique perspective on life, Sandra reveals new and surprising meanings behind almost every subject she broaches, and leaves audiences and critics alike in stitches.

Top Rating: 5 Stars! Sandra Shamas' latest show makes you rock with laughter for two hours, then sends you home feeling good about yourself. A heartfelt mixture of humour and humanism. Funny, funny, funny! Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

Top Rating: 4 Stars! Sandra's in top form. Piercingly funny. Rebecca Caldwell, Globe & Mail

Top Rating: 5 Stars! A heady mix of wit and social observation. Sandra's grown up, grown wiser, grown funnier and grown more contented. Very, very funny... pumpkin-pie-fudge for the soul. John Coulbourn, Toronto Sun

Brilliant! Incredible! Robin Polson CHFI/680 News
