Drawing inspirations from clowning and contemporary puppetry, Edmonton artists Alexander Forsyth and Keltie Brown perform this two-character sort-of love story in full mask — relying on physicality and occasional prop gags to tell the story of a guy who falls in love with a girl who’s in love with the idea of killing herself.

It’s a sweet story, but unfortunately the girl’s suicidal efforts never achieve the Wile E. Coyote-ish slapstick results they’re clearly seeking. As a result, no one’s likely to die… laughing.

— Brad Oswald

From the Fringe program:

Rachel and Irving live in the same building, ride the same elevator, take the same buses and shop at the same stores, but they are strangers. Then one day, something changes.

Performed in full mask and featuring seven comic suicide attempts, "7 Ways to Die, a love story" explores the isolation and absurdity of modern life.

A romantic comedy brought to you by Fringe veterans K.I.A. Productions and Selchie Theatre.
