Doubles: Part of Short Steeps
Steeping your tea for too long will make it bitter. The shorter the steep, the sweeter the experience. Short Steeps is the latest creation from Black Tea Productions. Fun and affordable theatre, this short play series will infuse the audience into the world of the characters.
The first show, Doubles, is an original piece written by Black Tea Productions. It follows several groups of characters as they deal with major issues in their lives; What do you do when you realize this is "it" in your life? Can a relationship survive if infidelity? ....and also explores some not so major issues; Is it OK to stretch in front of other dudes? What if your girlfriend isn't hot enough? So many life dilemmas!
In true Black Tea Productions form, we are reuniting with some talented past performers and inviting some newbies into our family - most of whom are Bishop's University alumni! Apparently, we can't stay away from each other. The show is being produced by Black Tea co-founder Rebecca Young-Hart and staged managed by fan favourite Melissa Wright (The Story of Mrs. Winchester, The Unsatisfactory Supper). Neil Brown (Head Carptener in The Story of Mrs. Winchester, Archie Lee in The Unsatisfactory Supper) is taking a break from the stage and making his Black Tea directorial debut.
Returning to the stage are Erin Hamilton (Soula in DANFORTH, Young Woman in The Story of Mrs. Winchester and Aunt Rose in The Unsatisfactory Supper), Peter Jarvis (Carpenter Randy in The Story of Mrs. Winchester) and Kelly Van der Burg (Carpenter Tom in The Story of Mrs. Winchester). We are proudly welcoming to Black Tea for the first time, three other Bishop's University Drama alumni: Trevor Marlatt, Melody Schaal and Michael Wighton. Last but certainly not least, rounding out the cast is Richard Malouin - although he did not attend Bishop's University, he did stay in one of the residences once!
Doubles will be performed for one night and one night only at The Curzon in Leslieville, November 23rd, 2012 at 9pm. Following the performance will be an amazing after party, so don't forget your dancing shoes.
