The Contract – Toronto Fringe 2012 Press Release

From Press Release


A man stumbles into a bar, and we are drawn into his quest to remember who he is and why he is there. When his wife and best friend appear, clues start to trickle like drops of paint on a canvas.   A mysterious video helps to flesh out a portrait of betrayal and regret, but also descends us deeper down the rabbit hole, into the very nature of life…and death.

“The Contract” merges video and live theatre into a seamless and captivating representation of a suicide victim in his afterlife struggling through painful recollections brought on by his post-life review.  This dramatic play/film hybrid reflects emerging modern beliefs about the afterlife and the ‘agreements’ that human souls make prior to incarnating.

Playwright Richard Enos is a true Renaissance man and pursuer of truth.  A writer, director, actor and transformational coach, his books include “Parables for the New Conversation”, published in 2008.  More info is available at’s Box Office is a film and theatre production company. Their first film, “In the Can”, is a short comedy that takes place in a bathroom during a wedding reception. Their second film, “Wailing at the Wall” is currently in post-production.

“The Contract” is a mesmerizing multimedia mystery that you won’t forget in this life… or the next one.
