The team that brought you Women of Manhattan and Autobahn teams up with the director of My Pregnant Brother to bring you the Canadian premiere of Fifty Words by Michael Weller, a play about family, betrayal, and love in all its forms.
Directed by Jeremy Taylor (My Pregnant Brother, The Beekeepers, The King of Fifteen Island), Fifty Words stars Nicole Braber (Women of Manhattan, Autobahn) and Craig Thomas (The Lady Smith, Women of Manhattan, Autobahn) and will run at The Freestanding Room from October 21st to November 6th.
With their son at a friend’s place for his first ever sleepover, Adam and Janine Penzius have the house to themselves for the first time in nine years. When the routines of parenthood are stripped away, what’s left to hold them together? In this long night of secrets revealed and problems addressed, they’ll have no choice but to stare their relationship fully in the face … and they may not like what they see.
Founded in 2008, The Freestanding Room is a theatre co-op made up of actors, writers, directors, and producers who believe that big things can happen in small places.
