The evening will feature three original Canadian works:
Life of Len explores life’s great chapters through the tales of Len, a real Windsor resident. Written and first performed by Eric Branget in 2015, this production has gone on to win the ‘Audience Choice’ and ‘Spirit of Fringe’ awards at the Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival. Join Len through the most defining aspects of his extraordinary life; both the earnest and witty endeavours of love, failure, brotherhood and dreaming. Life of Len seeks to explore how regardless of the peaks and valleys of life, family and dreams will always be there to give us hope. Inspired by true events.
What happens when a means of escape becomes more? Arrowwood Theatre Company presents ICARUS, a modern retelling of the classic story of a reckless dreamer. Kiera Publicover, Simone Matheson, Cullen MacNaughton, and Kyra Scarlett explore this classic story through movement, sound and contact improvisation; inspired by pushing boundaries and dreaming big. How big would you dream if you thought you could not fall?
Ted/Grace was written and first performed by Kyle Kimmerly in 2015. It deals with the story of a real-life Windsorite couple, and the trials they face as one partner transitions from male to female. The play focuses on her partner, Andrew, and his memories of Ted, the husband that he can't seem to leave behind. A memory play, Ted/Grace asks us what we are willing to do for the people we love, and if we can still be who we think we are when they show us another side of themselves.
