  • On Love should be On your list

    When I see a play like On Love performed at Fringe – or anywhere else during the year – I am reminded how very lucky we are to live in a city filled with such talented people.

Saw On Love yesterday; it’s definitely a ‘must-see’ at this year’s festival! Powerful performances from all four actors, seamless direction, combined with the fascinating text of verbatim theatre creates a highly memorable show. There are tears and laughter as each actor gets a moment to shine. Particularly memorable are Brittany Thiessen’s portrayal of young woman struggling with her parent’s separation, Dora Carroll’s piece on love and loss, and Ian Bastin and Ross McMillan’s hilarious (and realistic!) portrayal of an older couple. Thanks to all involved for a great show!

But when you’ve done that, you get impressions in sharp and startling focus. I’d suggest buying advance tickets — considering the size of the audience for the 10 pm Sunday show that I attended. This is the North American premiere of this play by Irish playwright Mick Gordon (really the world-outside-Ireland… Read more »
