Vic Harbour – Toronto Fringe 2012 Press Release

From Press Release

Here is the end of the world and no one else sees it.

Vic Harbour interacts with how Canadians face change, strife and the past. While navigating a town plagued by drugs, abuse, and ghosts, Alice Shelly and Jimmy Jones hope to change the town that imprisons them, or escape before they are forgotten like the rest of Vic Harbour.

This is a new work by Toronto playwright, Peter Counter. The play was partially inspired by ghost stories from the playwright’s childhood, and features Counter’s quirky wit and devastatingly honest dialogue. Director Andrew Gaboury fosters a collaborative and adrenalized rehearsal process. For this project the company will take their creation period out of the rehearsal hall and into the harbour.

The mission of Four Winds Collective is to nurture new theatrical works on a project-by-project basis that challenge an audience’s experience with theatre. They aim to work closely with both playwrights and devisors to foster an idea through the many steps of creation and many possibilities of staging. Vic Harbour is their debut in the Toronto Fringe.

This new work sheds light on the ambitions of a young man desperate to make a change in his community. Jimmy Jones’s enthusiasm is contagious, and the failures of the town will leave you questioning the dangers of both action and inaction. It is a piece you certainly do not want to miss.
