So, if you removed that hypothetical gun from my head and I could see ten more Fringe shows, what would they be and why?
11 - Studio Alethea Productions - Kafkaesque: A Musical Metamorphosis - Mixed Blood
12 - Snikt! Bamf! Thwip! - The Complete Works of William Shatner (abridged) - Rarig Thrust
their Fringe-For-All preview too much not to see the whole thing.
13 - Rebecca Kling - Storms Beneath Her Skin - Patrick's Cabaret
14 - Michael Venske Presents - Thumbs Up! - Patrick's Cabaret
15 - Billy Willy - The Billy Willy Show - HUGE Improv Theater
16 - The Peanut Butter Factory - Joe Dowling’s William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet on the Moon, etc. - Theatre In The Round
their wacky Fringe-For-All preview
17 - Freshwater Theatre - Going Down on the Queen of Minneapolis - Rarig Thrust
their Fringe-For-All preview.
18 - Jay Gabler - Ivory Tower Burning - Bryant Lake Bowl
His Fringe-For-All preview wasn't necessarily the best advertising, but I'm still really looking forward to seeing how Jay dramatizes his subject. (Oh, and don't confuse this with the Fringe show Ivory Tower - I know, what are the odds, right?)
19 - ITO Productions - Love Labour Loss - Bryant Lake Bowl
20 - Eat Street Players - Broken Memories - Gremlin Theatre
"LaDarrion Williams, a young writer from Arizona, finally had his play selected to be performed. This is his story about himself and people he knew. It is difficult to tell your darkest secrets to the whole world, but Ladarrion beautifully described in this Choreopoem all of the details of his Broken Memories. He seems stronger and more mature after facing his past and writing it for us to perform. He has so much support and love at home and they will be having a showing of Broken Memories as performed by Eat Street in his home town for everyone to watch.
More generally, about the true struggles teenagers have. They are not small issues and can lead to death if not talked about and helped. Broken Memories tells three different sides of a teenage life based on real stories and where no one stepped in to help these teens, but if they would have maybe there would have been a different ending to their stories. People need to listen to their stories, stand up to make change and "start a riot" so everyone knows about it.
High school is difficult, but these three kids are dealing with their darkest Broken Memories of life at home, with boys, or the treatment they receive daily. Kevin, Porcia and Claudine's lives are falling down around them and they starting to spiral out of control. Their inner furies have physically manifested themselves to push each student to the limits and in the end someone may be pushed over the edge.
A dramatic play with music, Broken Memories weaves instrumental and vocal music underneath movement and words to express the stories of its three protagonists. An evocative journey. Originally produced in the Eat Street Players Fresh Bites One Act Festival."
