OPENING TOMORROW NIGHT IN FREDERICTON!
GRID CITY MAGAZINE
Nasty Shadows have been producing fearless independent theatre for almost 20 years now. Founded in 1999, the company usually surfaces at least once a year to deliver an intimate, stripped down theatre experience for New Brunswick audiences with performances in Fredericton, Saint John and Moncton.
This week the company will stage Daniel MacIvor’s play, In On It, a work that has been described as … [READ MORE] >>>
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 >>>
Show week! Opening our “3 CITIES IN NB ARE IN ON IT” tour in Fredericton on Thursday. Last night we performed for a small invited preview audience – lessons learned. All my life I’ve been a performer in some capacity, at times more active than others, but with our recent shifts in how Nasty Shadows stages things I have found performing only once per year to be both exhilarating and terrifying! We had a small group of friends come for the preview last night, and I was nervous all day … nauseated a bit in the afternoon, sweating buckets at the start of our preview run, but then the groove started settling in and I began to feel the comfort of being on stage in front of watchful eyes – thanks to those who endured the preview! It’s much appreciated!.
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.
