Moonlight After Midnight – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

MoonlightExcerpt from Press Release:

Moonlight After Midnight is a romantic mystery that beguiles audiences with the simple story of a woman and a man accidentally meeting in a hotel room. Though as the story shifts and fractures, the dramatic possibilities multiply, culminating in a heart-rending twist.

In the summer of 2010, Vanessa Quesnelle and Martin Dockery met at a theatre festival in London, Ontario, had a fringe romance, and within weeks decided to tour a two-person play across the country the following year. What could have been a four-month disastrous tour proved to be the groundwork for their courtship and Concrete Drops Theatre was born. Today, they are married and continue to create and tour their work together.

Concrete Drops Theatre has toured five plays to fringe festivals across Australia and North America. Moonlight After Midnight has been awarded the Weekly Award – Best Theatre at the Adelaide Australia Fringe, Best Theatre of Adelaide Fringe – The Advertiser newspaper, Critics Pick Best Show at Cincinnati Fringe, Critics Pick Best Show at Orlando Fringe, Runner-Up Critics Pick at Vancouver Fringe Festival, Best Original Work at Ottawa Fringe Festival.
