3 NB CITIES ARE IN ON IT
“There are the things that happen out of careful planning.
IN ON IT is Daniel MacIvor at his best. Woven through a rich tapestry of layered spectacle, IN ON IT presents the story of two men and the drama of their lives. IN ON IT is a hauntingly dark and beautiful masterpiece, spiced with moments of poignancy so rich they will linger in your imagination long after the play is done.
Produced by Nasty Shadows, a veteran company of some of Fredericton’s most experienced amateur actors, IN ON IT is one in a long line of Daniel MacIvor plays undertaken by the company. Known for their attention to intimacy and for shedding the artifices of big production, Daniel MacIvor’s seemingly simplistic, yet deceivingly complex and carefully crafted dramas, are a natural fit for the Shadows. You are invited to share in the company’s love of that craft, and the depth, humour, and pleasures that are to be found in Daniel MacIvor’s IN ON IT.

REHEARSAL NOTES >>>
A month since my last report and we are just about through our detailed work on each scene, just a few scenes left to go, so we are in a good place. Michael has most of the sound work done except for a few cues we have to actually record. Venues have been secured, poster printed and circulating, so we are moving closer and closer to the new year. We’re back in Memorial Hall on the UNB Freddy campus Jan 12th-14th (Thurs-Sat), then the next weekend we move onto another familiar venue we love in Saint John, the Mini-Theatre in SJHS Jan 20th-21st (Fri-Sat), and finally our *very first* performance in Moncton, NB at Théâtre l’Escaouette Feb 4th (Sat).
NASTY WRITING IN DEVELOPMENT
A STORY JONES continues …
With our current work for In On It over the fall, we have stepped away from spending time in the rehearsal room on A Story Jones, but I have been writing and re-writing, and so on … you can read about the process so far in our Shadow Shows section.
