Six Stories, Told at Night – Toronto Fringe 2018 Press Release

From press release

After winning the 2017 Parsec Award (the “Oscars of podcasting”) the podcasted audio drama SIX STORIES, TOLD AT NIGHT is making its stage premiere at the Toronto Fringe Festival. The first indie fantasy podcast adapted for live theatre, SIX STORIES weaves a narrative of complicated female friendship through five French-Canadian folktales. Produced by new theatre company Gangway! Theatre Co., it plays at the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace through the Fringe (July 4 – 15, 2018).

Written and adapted by award-winning author KT Bryski, SIX STORIES showcases actor Blythe Haynes reprising her role as the work’s heroine, Samantha. SIX STORIES is the duo’s latest collaboration, which includes numerous audio dramas and theatrical productions.

SIX STORIES also features actors Alexandra Milne and Isaiah Kolundzic, director Blair Haynes, and stage manager/production designer Jeremy Pearson. It is the debut production for Gangway! Theatre Co.

Established in 2017, Gangway! Theatre Co. is the result of Haynes’ and Bryski’s longstanding creative partnership. The pair met working at Black Creek Pioneer Village, where they initiated the “History Actors” theatre program, exploring real people and realstories through drama. After much ad hoc collaboration, they founded Gangway! to promote and produce Canadian and female-focused works.
