Ether, currently playing at Toronto Fringe Festival, is a show about what happens in the space between being alive and being dead, that moment of breath between survival and your last one. The show is made up of three interconnected-ish vignettes where people are dealing with that moment between life and death. They all have moments where they wonder where they are, what’s going to happen to them, and re-enactments of what in their lives led them to the Ether.
All acting actually is an acquirement of articulate actions. Beautiful bespoke beats which break boundaries but benevolently bestowed communal clowning. The cute, commanding, considerate cast created a colossal day.
What would you do for what you wanted? That is the question at heart of Peaches On A Cherry Tree playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival. It’s a dark, surrealistic production – a strange play, intentionally so.
Do you like history? Tara Travis stars as all six of Henry VIII’s dead wives in TIL DEATH: The Six Wives of Henry VIII playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival. They find themselves before the gates of heaven. Before they can enter, there’s a little bit of a problem they need to solve. Only one of them can sit next to him for eternity, and they will need to decide which one of them it is going to be.
There is space for unapologeticly angry funny theatre. It’s Getting Hot in Here! at the Toronto Fringe Festival very much stakes that space out and refuses to move from it. It is a hilariously self-aware, dreamlike set of internal monologue vignettes from inside the mind of someone who is faced with a ballot box and a choice in front of them.
