Introducing Crime and Passion

It's been a while since I've done a show - months - which for me is an eternity. It's so great to be back to the cut-and-thrust of creative collaboration, and even greater to be working on this very special project.

This is a co-production between Grinder productions and up-and-coming local playwright Vince Masson, who's bringing his work to the stage for the very first time.

The show is called Crime and Passion, and it is actually a collection of five 1-act plays, three by Vince and two by yours truly. It will be performed March 26th at 2pm and 8pm at the Ennotville Library.

The first half of the show, Crime, revolves around illicit activities.

“I enjoy the idea of regular people getting caught up in extraordinary circumstances, especially when it pertains to crime,” Vince says. “Stories where straight-laced, regular people can become entangled in criminal activity is something I’ve explored heavily in these plays, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product come to life.”

Being a lover, not a figher, my plays form the Passion half of the production.

I’m very excited about all these shows, and to be collaborating with Vince to bring his plays to the stage. It’s not every day you get to introduce a new playwright’s works to the world.

Please be advised, some of the plays contain coarse language, stage violence and mildly suggestive humour, so all potential actors should be comfortable with this, and should be at least 16 years of age or older.

All tickets are $15 each, and seating is limited. For more info or to get tickets to the show please call 519-780-7593 or talk to any cast member. And please check back next week, when I hope to have some rehearsal photos to share with you.
