News Release

Gravy Bath Productions in association with The Leanor & Alvin Segal Theatre presents

Written & directed by Anthony Kokx

(The Second Stage of The Leanor and Alvin Segal Theatre)

December 7 - 17, 2005

In the shade is Gravy Bath’s latest production. Playing with the ideas of broken routines and sudden deaths, our cast of seven actors explores what life becomes when we know we’re going to die. What risks we take and what inspires us to act in such conflicting circumstances; ‘the difference between Aces or Kings, win or lose, life or death’. Gravy Bath is continuing to develop its own style of creation and language by incorporating all elements of theatrical form; from the design to staging, writing and acting, and pushing forward for a more innovative and imaginative presentation, hoping to spark the synergy between audience and storyteller.

Gravy Bath Productions is an 8-time Montreal English Critics Circle Award-winning independent theatre company dedicated to the creation of original works, the re-interpretation of important classical texts, and the exploration of new theatrical styles. Established in 1999 and now housed at The ‘B’egal Theatre, Gravy Bath Productions is constantly evolving and exploring, searching for new ways to tap into the Theatre of the Imagination. Producers of the New Classical Theatre Festival, past productions include: This Table, Oedipus Rex, The Rape of Lucrece, Kali Yuga, De Profundis, Coriolanus, The Portrait of Dorian Gray, Ugly, Henry. Octobre. 1970., Top Gun Circus, UnfoundedFearOf, Tempest: Forecast Disorder, Critic and Christofer’s Story.

In the Shade, written & directed by Anthony Kokx, designed by Paul Chambers, created & performed by Don Anderson, Yann Bernaquez, Angela Galuppo, Stephanie Greer, Chris Masson, Shaun McComb & Kelly Patterson.
