Bums In Seats, Food In Bellies (BISFIB) Challenge for The Ottawa Food Bank

The Penultimate Problem
of Sherlock Holmes

a play by John Nassivera
directed by Andre Dimitrijevic


This fall, Phoenix Players will be presenting the John Nassivera play 'The Penultimate Problem of Sherlock Holmes' from Nov. 23-Dec.1/18 at The Gladstone Theatre.

We at Phoenix have always dreamed of playing to a full or almost full house.

This year we have taken matters into our own hands and have created
'The BISFIB Challenge'; Bums In Seats, Food In Bellies.'

We are challenging the good people of Ottawa to purchase a total of 1,500 tickets over the run of 10 shows. In return, one of the cast members, John Kershman who is also an orthodontist when he is not acting, has generously agreed to make a $5,000 donation to the Ottawa Food Bank!
