October 23 - November 9, 2014
This Hallowe’en, one of Toronto’s hottest indie theatre companies, Red One Theatre Collective with the generous support of Theatre Brouhaha bring you Caryl Churchill’s “Impossible” play.
In his directorial debut, Daniel Pagett helms a cast of Toronto’s hottest Indie talents to present Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker- often described as her ‘impossible play’, due to the magical nature of the show, the shattered language with which the narrator speaks and the sheer scope of the faerie underworld that it weaves in and out of. This unique theatrical experience will invite the audience into The Storefront Theatre, transformed into a portal to the faeries’ home by our critically acclaimed design team. The Skriker provides a completely immersive experience in this dark and twisted world.

“Pagett, who pulls off an extraordinary feat in his first directorial effort, makes sense of a difficult text by charting a firm through-line on language and story - there's no single right way to unravel this play - inspiring his actors to be clear, scary and darkly funny in equal measure.”
