The reviews are in!
“Marg Szkaluba might be a hard woman, but in concert she sure knows how to work the room…a powerhouse performance”
“The combination of Pollock’s funny, earthy performance, Chambers’ compelling, believable script and Jamie Dunsdon’s steady directorial hand makes Marg Szkaluba a bar story worth a pint or two of your time.”
- Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald
“So controlled and carefully delineated is Pollock’s performance that she truly does become this remarkable woman…With Pissy’s Wife, Verb Theatre and director Jamie Dunsdon have given us a little gem well worth searching out.” FOUR STARS.
- Louis Hobson, Calgary Sun

While playing a country blues set at a local honky tonk, Marg tells the crowd her vivid and wryly funny story. This self-proclaimed “hard woman” tells of her abusive marriage to “Pissy” and her eventual escape through a surprising new life as a country blues singer. A bitterly funny night of songs and stories told by one of Calgary’s most loved and respected theatre artists.
