More information on the show

AfterLife
a one woman play

New York-based theatre company SunsetGun Productions presents the Toronto premiere of their award-winning drama AfterLife in conjunction with the 21st annual Toronto Fringe Festival.  Performances will take place at the Glen Morris Theatre, 4 Glen Morris Street, beginning July 1 and running until July 10, 2009.  All tickets $10.

AfterLife is a dramatic, yet darkly funny take on the evolution of women in modern society told through a ‘karmic lens’.  The story is told by dropping in on a significant day in the life of three different women in three very different eras of time. Ruth, a 1928 Appalachian midwife, would kill for a family. Marion, a 1950’s homemaker, needs to discover her true yogic nature. And Karma, a slowly unraveling film producer, would settle for a bit of sanity. What do these three seemingly disconnected women have in common? Nothing…and everything. As we move through these three vastly different incarnations, it becomes apparent that we are not only on a journey through one soul’s search for ultimate happiness, but through a brief journey of all women. AfterLife begs us to question just how many of Ruth, Marion, and Karma’s choices are dictated by their own free will and prejudices? How much of their lives are haunted by pre-existing karmic baggage? What portions of these decisions are decided by societal constraints imposed on them as women during their time period?

"Candy Simmons is superb in AfterLife. Every once in a while at the Montreal Fringe Festival, you experience a theatrical moment that takes your breath away.
AfterLife has that effect." — Montreal Gazette
"The three characters are devastatingly well-drawn and they evolve in unexpected directions, exploding out of stereotypes like shedding a dress.  An absolute must see show." — FIVE STARS, Victoria’s Monday Magazine

  1. I met the director of this, and can’t wait to see it. Sounds fantastic!
    I’d love to have a chance at an Afterlife ticket, too!

  2. Yep, ticket for today – Brian, as long as you can make it, the ticket is yours!

    Sorry for the delay on this, technical difficulties at good ol’ Mooney on Theatre…

  3. Thanks for the tickets. We enjoyed the show. It was a solo show by Candy Simmons, consisting of 3 – just a little linked – presentations/monologues. The artist (excellent)was better than the script. Overall, 4 stars (out of 5).
