Theatre Network presents a Keep Frozen production
Written & Performed by Karen Hines
“Come into my taxi car,
A Pontiac whose driver cares,
It’s candy flossy pink inside,
An Uber to nowhere…”
From the creators of Mump & Smoot.
Pochsy used to work at Mercury Packers. Where she packed mercury. Now Mercury Packers has moved its operations offshore. A robot has her job, and Pochsy has joined the ranks of the Googlers, dreamers, and yearners for a future that is now… it just hasn’t happened yet.
Join Pochsy as she says goodbye to her industrial past and embarks on a 4-star cruise down the River of Forgetfulness.
From humble Fringe Festival beginnings, Karen Hines has taken her Pochsy plays and films across Canada and around the world to great acclaim over a quarter-century. But never fear – you can be brand new to the world of this “apocalyptic vision of Clara Bow and Betty Boop” to enjoy Pochsy IV.

Karen Hines’ Pochsy, the crown princess of narcissism, has become one of the little gems of Canadian theatre, an unforgettable character steeped in equal measures of honey and acid.— Robert Crew, Toronto Star
This apocalyptic vision of Clara Bow and Betty Boop … is the most intriguing female creation to hit the stage in a long time…— Valerie Gregory, Edmonton Sun
Hilarious and harrowing…A walking, singing, dancing embodiment of designer nihilism … Her comedy has the rare ability to make you laugh while feeling queasy.— Jill Lawless, NOW Magazine
