Sometimes, when just the right assortment of scientific elements comes together, a reaction occurs that causes a lot of heat. Hot Core, a sci-fi-action-comedy-mystery written by Cody Gabrielson and performed by Winnipeg-based Go Scold Ye Brain, is not one of those times.

The four-person troupe’s tale of three scientists involved in a dangerous new energy-harnessing initiative is intended as a humour-laced thriller and a cautionary tale, but the indifferent script’s flawed narrative logic fails to create anything in the way of energy, momentum or critical entertainment mass.

It’s hard to judge the cast’s performances because they have so little with which to work. In short, it’s an experiment that produces little in the way of results.

 

From the Fringe program:

The Regeonew Corporation is rebranding its public image and has developed a new clean energy source from the center of the Earth. The initiation of the energy source doesn't go as planned leaving some very strange and hard to explain consequences for the scientists involved. Tracey, Trent and Carl have to figure out what happened and what to do next. Science fiction, comedy, action, dreams, mystery all rolled into HOT CORE! Buh da daaaaa .…
