MacIvor sends us his thoughts on YAH!

Daniel MacIvor emailed us about YAH (how cool is that?!) Here’s what he had to say about the show.

“When I was a kid I read a story about a man who died and was forced to watch his life over again like a film, in real time, with him as the only viewer. That idea stayed with me and is central to Allison’s journey in You Are Here. Her dilemma is one I try to remember daily – we may get to revisit our lives many times, but we only get to make the choices we make once. Choose well.”

Made our week, thanks Daniel! Listen in to CBC WAM with Angela Antle this Sunday, November 24 at 9:10am to hear YAH director Kevin Woolridge talk about the show- plus Antle claims that MacIvor one time hit her in the chops?! Find out what happened there! 🙂 A HUGE thanks to The Muse who wrote a really great article about us! Fine it in print at Memorial University or online soon! Thanks again to everyone who came out to our fundraiser on Tuesday- a really fun night and a chance to relax a bit before we open- only 6 days!

Grenfell Grads on Tour

As you may or may not know, Engine Productions was founded by three graduates of Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus (or as we called it back then, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College- or plain ol’ Grenfell!). We are updating today to let folks know that two of our friends and fellow Grenfell grads, Mark Bradbury and Colin Furlong are touring Daniel MacIvor’s play House to the LSPU Hall in St. John’s next month! Moving it from Corner Brook right across the island, they are touring this wonderful one-man show and trust when we say that this gang is crazy talented!

“House tells the story of Victor, a man in crisis who is eager to confess tales of his sordid history with the hope of achieving a more satisfying future. House blurs the boundaries between actor and audience in an unpredictable ride riddled with black humor and vivid storytelling.”

RSVP to the show at their facebook event page, and if you would like to donate to their fundraising, please visit here. Gotta support fellow Grenfell talents! Break legs!

*UPDATE! ANOTHER GREAT SHOW!*

Kevin Woolridge (yet another Grenfell alumni) is having his work Saner and Buzzy open at the LSPU hall TOMORROW night (running November 15-17). Starring Ross Moore (who you may remember from EP’s “The Shape of Things” and also our Queer Theatre Fest), Rory Lambert and Neil Butler! A really quirky show and I know it’s going to be hilarious!

“Saner and Buzzy is a play about Michael Jackson and Chris de Burgh. And gummy bears. And creepy fortune tellers. And also Monet. It may include a game of Twister. It definitely involves two strangers named Saner and Buzzy and the consequences of waiting too long for something that might never happen.”
