Rounding the Bend — Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“One act musical, exploring female relationships and the blurred lines between love and friendship.”


Excerpt from Press Release:

Rounding the Bend is a one act musical, exploring female relationships and the blurred lines between love and friendship. Four best friends reunite for a summer road trip, and struggle through a journey of self-discovery, featuring six original musical numbers and a slew of catchy “cars songs”.

Out Of The Blue Theatre Company is a newly formed Toronto collective, comprised of fresh talent, committed to telling young women’s stories. Based upon true events, Rounding the Bend highlights a common female experience of sexual fluidity, in a generation post “I kissed a girl and I liked it.” What one friend sees as harmless experimentation, could be a romantic awakening for another.

Written, directed, and produced by twenty-one year-old Eliza Blue Musselwhite, this production is just coming off a successful run at the 2015 Paprika Festival. The company is fronted by an all-female cast of young actors, with undeniable chemistry.

Rounding the Bend is a fun, emotional “ride” full of friendship, heartbreak, confusion, and love.
