Cut Throat - PACE Theatre

Excerpted from press release:

“Cut-Throat: The Isolation of Ambition”, a dark comedy premiering at the 2015 Toronto Fringe Festival, tells the story of ex-serial killer Maggie Levene, who has given up her dark days to follow her dreams of becoming an actor. Maggie, who is far from living a life of luxury, finds herself unable to afford her windowless, kitchen-less apartment – until Jenna Bell, a fellow actor with a similarly not-so-innocent past, move in. Stakes are high and blood runs deep when the two find themselves vying for the same role and are faced with the question: how far are you willing to go to achieve your dream?

Formed by two graduates of the University of Waterloo’s Drama program, Pace Theatre Toronto’s first show is a collaborative effort by the actors and the writer. Pace Theatre Toronto began as an idea between co-founders Andreea Hluscu and Meghan Jones, evolving into an opportunity to work collaboratively. “Cut-Throat” soon transformed into a collective creation between writer and actors, which aim to convey an honest yet comedic multi-layered story from various modern female perspectives.

Making their Toronto acting debut are Andreea Hluscu, Meghan Jones, Kandi Prosser and Zach Parsons who have been working closely as a company to develop a challenging new show featuring fresh, exciting, and dynamic writing and performance. “Cut-Throat: The Isolation of Ambition” promises to be a raw, unforgiving and hilarious theatre experience for all audience members.
