Charming Monsters – Toronto Fringe 2013 Press Release

From Press Release



CHARMING MONSTERS by Aaron Rothermund

Henry is a nuisance in our little town. He came to Claudiaʼs seeking work, and ends up moving in. Lilith wants him to come back home, but will settle for his death. It takes a town to hide a body in this charming new play about the monster in us all.

Afterglow Theatre presents CHARMING MONSTERS through our lens of carefully crafted vision. Original music by Bob Wiseman is sure to delight, and lighting design by Bryan Hall will dazzle. At the helm of this production is Aaron Rothermund with his heart on his sleeve and a fistful of whimsy. Recently Aaron Rothermund directed Into at Berkeley Street theatre, And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens for The Tennessee Project, and Facio at Vanier College/York University.
