Heralding a groundbreaking new alliance between the Randolph Centre for the Arts and the Toronto Fringe, Randolph Entertainment has been granted a Fringe Fundraiser slot in the 2010 Fringe of Toronto Theatre Festival and will present Eugene Ionesco’s Absurd and darkly comedic Killing Game in association with REDHANDED film and theatre.

Following the appearance of a mysterious “Black Monk” and the arrival of a devastating plague, a once gossipy burg quickly dissipates into packs of angry mobs, hypocrisy, crass opportunism, and arrant selfishness. Tragedy blends with the hilariously absurd and clichés bend to controversy as we bear witness to the extremes these citizens will go to in order to ensure their survival. Only one thing is certain: there will be death.

Inspired by Punch and Judy shows and riddled with vaudevillian antics, Killing Game is a fresh, funny and at times scathing treatment of our society. From our growing fears of global annihilation, superviruses and “the enemy”, to our basest fears of death, this wacky reality, all too much like our own, is a must-see for “Fringers.”

Killing Game is directed by Rosanna Saracino, choreography by Melanie Windle, original music by David Rhymer, set design by Scott Penner, and features a host of emerging and established Canadian talent from faculty and recent graduates of the Randolph Academy to celebrated veteran performer Bruce Horak.
