Little Black Rain Cloud Productions is proud to present its inaugural play, Fridge Horror, at the 2016 St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival. Written by Violette Kay, the show can perhaps only be described as “a darkly comical tale of star-crossed lovers, in a fridge… with puppets!”
Join us in listening to a bitter and melodramatic refrigerator as he shares his inner turmoil. Can a tomato and a red apple live happily ever after? Follow the unlikely couple on their journey through the fridge, where they meet a variety of quirky characters and ponder the greatest question of fridge-life: should one fear or embrace the possibility of being eaten?
The play features eleven unique puppets brought to life by Ross Berlettano, Violette Kay and Félix Robitaille. They have shared the stage in several productions during their studies in the Professional Theatre Program at John Abbott College: Arcadia, Blindness, Noises Off and Into the Woods. Recently, the trio was also a part of the puppet building team for RustWerk ReFinery’s Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Stage Play, directed by Zach Fraser, who introduced the trio to puppetry in his production of Blindness.
Fridge Horror will be presented at the National Theatre School’s Pauline McGibbon Studio between June 10 and 18, 2016. Tickets are 7$ and can be purchased directly at the venue, or online at montrealfringe.ca.
