WE GLOW

 

IN LIFE SCRIPT WE TRUST

 

Welcome to the board room, where the temperatures are soaring, and the audience are the board members stoking the fires. We have come to ask for our jobs back. Cause we deserve them.

Please?

 

When two highly successful A-Types hit their ceiling at work, they make a business agreement to get married and have kids -  finishing off the dictates of the ubiquitous life script.  They hit a snag however when they are unable to conceive.

Will a vacation to the far flung reaches of Christmas island allow them to reboot?

A satire that is too close to home.

 

Written and performed by Brad Long and Emily Pearlman

Directed and dramaturged by Kevin Orr

Stage Management and design by Sean Green

"Superb Site-Specific Satire"

****

- Winnipeg Free Press

"this hilariously cynical work stands out as exemplary fringe theatre'"

*****

- Edmonton Vue

PRODUCTION HISTORY

 

We Glow premiered at the Ottawa Fringe Festival 2013 in an off-site venue - the senate chambers at the Univeristy of Ottawa.

In the summer of 2014 it played at both the Winnipeg and Edmonton Fringe Festivals.

We Glow was one of six shows selected to "hold over" at the end of the Edmonton Fringe.
