Planetarium Auditorium (Venue 10), to Saturday

Four talented local actors — Dorothy Carroll, Hilary Carroll, James Firby and Derek Leenhouts — strut their thespian stuff, taking on 12 characters in six short one-act plays by prominent American playwright Neil LaBute, all set in the front seat of a car.

Dorothy Carroll stands out, especially scary as a young woman who shows her savage side to her new boyfriend, and scary in a different way as an angry daughter mounting a progressively damaging verbal assault against her silent, withholding mother on a return trip from a rehab facility. LaBute’s material is inevitably disturbing, but often very funny, and the performances here make it come alive, leaving this production a perfect embodiment of fringe theatre at its best.

— Randall King

 

From the official Fringe Festival program:

4 actors. 12 characters. 6 shorts set in the front seat of a car.

From place to place, a string of choices to get us where we intend to go easily leads somewhere new. Whether amusing or disturbing, there's an entire journey happening.

From the company that brought previous Best of Fest Fringe hits One Good Marriage (5 STARS - WFP) and The Bush Ladies (4 STARS - CBC)
