News   Jennifer Tremblay's Solo Piece The List Will Play Toronto
 
Toronto's Nightwood Theatre will begin its 2010-11 season with The List, a solo piece addressing the culpability of friendship, by Jennifer Tremblay. Allegra Fulton stars.

The play, a co-production with Canadian Stage, will be directed by Kelly Thornton and presented in Shelley Tepperman's translation from the original by Tremblay, who is Quebecois. It will perform at the Berkeley Street Theatre Downstairs Oct. 11-Nov. 6, with an official opening Oct. 14.

The play follows a woman who has recently moved into a new neighborhood with her husband and children and become acquainted with a new neighbor who wants her to fulfill a special request. According to Nightwood notes, "The woman, who prides herself on never letting anything slip by, has overlooked an item on her list, which has led to a terrible tragedy. Could this one tiny action have made a difference?"

Denyse Karn will design sets and costumes for the play, and Kimberly Purtell will design lighting.

Tremblay received the Governor General's prize for her play La Liste (The List). Fulton's credits include another solo show, Frida K.; Geometry in Venice; The Taming of the Shrew; Scorched; and the film "Loonie."

The Berkeley Theatre Downstairs is located at 26 Berkeley Street in Toronto. For tickets, call (416) 368.3110 or visit www.nightwoodtheatre.net.
