Meet Joanie Little: feisty redhead and anthropology graduate. She’s stuck working as a barista in corporate coffee shop. Eager to use her actual skills, Joanie turns her coffee shop upside down when she starts reporting her “findings” on the “creatures” (humans) of her “Coffeeshop Jungle” as though she were Jane Goodall herself, bushwhacking through the African jungle to study the chimpanzees! Hilarity ensues! Bosses are angered! The local news has a heyday! Jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns and life lessons in under an hour. This is for anyone who’s ever had a job they couldn’t stand. This solo show is written and performed by Toronto’s critically-acclaimed performer Rebecca Perry.
THE REDHEADED COFFEESHOP GIRL IS COMING TO REDHEAD DAY UK 2016!
On September 17th 2016, Joanie Little will be bringing her original story to Redhead Day UK 2016! An annual event to celebrate all things redhead, this is a really exciting opportunity, and a wonderful platform for the show!

THE REDHEADED COFFEESHOP GIRL MET DR. JANE GOODALL!
Dr. Jane Goodall came to Toronto on April 12th 2016 to delivery her Journey from the Jungle lecture at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts – and the Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl was there! It was a wonderful experience to hear Jane speak live, and Rebecca was delighted to be there. Not only that, but she managed to meet Jane afterwards, to thank her in person for her work and her inspiration, and to invite her to see the Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl shows. Jane was even kind enough to sign a couple of things and let Rebecca take a photograph with her!
