Mr. Fix It

Mel awakes in his hotel room to find out he isn’t divorced to his ex-wife after all.

Of Note: Mr. Fix It was nominated for a Betty Mitchell Theatre Award for Outstanding New Play.


When you are given a second chance to make it right, make it right.


Mel has made such a mess of his marriage, can he fix it?


“A gem of a romantic comedy....the jokes come fast and furious but so do Russell-King's insights into what makes a marriage fun, maddening, impossible and salvageable...this is one little diversion you won't want to miss – 4 stars.”
– Louis B. Hobson, The Calgary Sun
“Written as an homage to Neil Simon and it certainly does feel like something Neil Simon might have written. Russell-King keeps the tempo tuned up and the quips flying.”
– Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald
“The script is the star of the show with effortless undulating rhythms that keep the play snappy and entertaining. Russell-King wrote the piece as an homage to Neil Simon and it's not hard to imagine that Simon would be pleased by the honour.”
– Drew Anderson, Fast Forward Magazine
