Coming to Toronto Fringe 2009: Dante

From Press Release

Peanutfish Productions


By Kaitlin Phillips

The famed poet is penniless, miserable, and so uninspired he can barely write an advertising jingle!  He could write again if only the woman he loves would return to him, but when she shows up with a surprising offer, Dante is forced to choose between abandoning the only good thing in his life and watching his one true love leave him forever.

Three actors from Portland, Oregon explore the questions of love, immortality, and why a brilliant poet can’t tell a decent joke in the World Premiere of a new play by Kaitlin Phillips, an exciting young playwright! 

First formed in the Walla Walla Valley in Eastern Washington, Peanutfish Productions boasts a cast from Australia and the USA. 

Directed by Ben Esler who can be seen in the upcoming HBO miniseries The Pacific, and featuring Kristan Brown, fresh from The London Academy of Musical and Dramatic Arts, Caitlin Goldie, a Presidential Scholar and performer at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe, and Forrest Seamons, formerly of Formerly Witty Productions, all together for your fringe viewing pleasure!
