Three Grenfell Theatre grads are preparing to get back on the Grenfell Theatre stage for the first time in years when they come through town this weekend. Colin Furlong, Sandy Gow, and Rory Lambert will be back in Corner Brook with the dark comedy Parlour Song on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
About the play:
During a hot summer in the suburbs, Ned and his wife Joy find their relationship strained. Ned, a demolitions expert, isn’t sleeping; he’s out of shape, his wife is acting strangely, and worst of all…his things are disappearing. In an attempt to win back Joy’s affections and keep his nightmares at bay, he confides in his neighbor Dale, a car-wash owner living in an almost identical house next door. As the two begin an exercise regime to get Ned back into shape, events in the household take a strange turn. Stuck between the two, Dale attempts to keep his head above water as Ned’s paranoia and Joy’s frustration lead all three of them towards disaster.
The show is directed by Todd Hennesey, with design by Philippa Jones, Renate Pohl and George Robertson. Given the amazing cast and crew behind this show, it’s bound to be incredible.
Parlour Song plays Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8pm and Sunday, Sept. 23 at 2pm at the Grenfell Campus Theatre in the Fine Arts Building. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased at Brewed Awakening and at the door. Students can purchase tickets for $15 at the Grenfell Campus Bookstore until 4:30pm on Friday.
