RAGE AGAINST The Trilogy – TORONTO FRINGE 2018 PRESS RELEASE

From Press Release:

“RAGE AGAINST The Trilogy” is three-of-a kind but really one-of-a-kind! A trilogy of shows all presented at the Toronto Fringe Festival that occur in a shared universe (of sorts), revolving around one-incident involving our amalgamated metaphor for the forgotten and marginalized (an unnamed homeless person). The ideas and questions asked revolve around “Good vs. Right” (i.e., what obligations, if any, do you have towards your loved ones in comparison to yourself and the cause you wish to die or fight for), “Finding Home” (i.e., what determines our sense of belonging? Is it our work? Is it our family? Is it our perceived sense of fulfilment?) and “Seeking Paradise” (i.e., How satisfied would we be if we perceive ourselves to be “successful” or at “home”? If ignorance is bliss then why do seek more?), and the madness and indifference in between. The structure of the trilogy is loosely inspired by Dante’s “Divine Comedy” – with each of the three shows drawing from “Inferno” (RAGE AGAINST The Inferno (Jerusalem), “Purgatorio” (RAGE AGAINST The Complacent), and “Paradiso” (RAGE AGAINST The King).
