pool (no water) — Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“[A] critically acclaimed, darkly comic play”


Excerpt from Press Release:

Known for his shock-tactics and scorching critiques, Ravenhill has been called both “perverse” and “poetic”. For the first time his critically acclaimed, darkly comic play pool (no water) will hit Toronto stages as a part of this summer’s Fringe Festival.

When a famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious pool, for one night the group is back together. But celebrations come to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. As the victim lies in a coma, an almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be their next work of art?

Featuring celebrated ensemble cast: Dora winner Oyin Oladejo, Dora nominee Chy Ryan Spain, Dora and two time Canadian Comedy Award nominee Allison Price, Daniel Roberts and Sarah Illitovitch-Goldman.

Coming off of the success of Kate and Sam Are Not Breaking Up (NNNN Now Magazine, 2015 Dora Nominee for Female Outstanding Performance) and Pieces (Shortlisted for RBC Tarragon Emerging Playwrights Competition) Cue6 continues to build their reputation as a daring indie theatre company.

For anyone who’s ever felt the poisonous sting of jealousy, or the forbidden excitement of tragedy, Cue6 invites you to wade in the darkest waters of the human experience.
