“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.

3 SHADOWS EMERGE IN THE LIGHT …
In the spring of 2016 Nasty Shadows made yet another step towards focusing on the creation of new work, while still maintaining a playful performance side exploring influential theatrical texts. Three Shadows, Michael Holmes-Lauder, Matthew Spinney, and Scott Shannon will be Nasty Shadows for the foreseeable future, forming a “Garage Band” of sorts to create/produce/stage the results of their explorations and committment.
The past 9 months have been spent writing along with some rehearsals of new text in our developing tribute work, A STORY JONES. The development continues, with plans to share a workshop version of the play later in the fall of 2016.
