P-Dale – Toronto Fringe 2011 Press Release

From press release

“In Life there are choices. Some good. Some bad. Mine? Mostly Bad.”

Unit 102 Collective
Written by Luis Fernandes and Directed by Jesse Ryder Hughes

P-Dale is a brave comedy set in Parkdale Toronto about four down and out losers that plan a heist that will, hopefully, change all of their lives for the better.

Snoop (the leader), Twizzle (the gangsta rapper from Richmond Hill), Walker (the homeless guy) and Svelte (the overconfident ladies man) team up and plan to rob a convenience store operated by the nicest guy in the world, Mr Leung, but everything goes horribly awry. A hilarious commentary on modern day Toronto in the village of Parkdale where people with personal problems are actually smarter than we realize.

P-dale is a high energy and heartfelt comedy that comes to you from Playwright, comedian and actor, Luis Fernandes. Director Jesse Ryder Hughes is a proud graduate of the Humber Theatre Performance program and graduate of the Second City Conservatory Program. Unit 102 Collective was founded in 2008 and has committed themselves to theatre that asks the questions:

Why does society put us in a class system? How do we humble ourselves in that understanding? Unit 102 Collective is proud to be working on their first new play written by a member of the company – which has been the funniest time spent they have ever had working on a piece.
