>Just a quick plug for our buddy Anton. He’s in a play! How cool is that? We’re going to go see him, and we thought we’d put the info up here for anyone who’s interested. Here’s the site, and here’s the press release.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Out of Sight Productions presents
‘I Only See Shadows’ by Kelly MacDonald
at the 2009 London Fringe Festival
London, Ontario, April 27, 2009 – Out of Sight Productions, London’s leading theatre company featuring sight-challenged performers, is presenting London playwright Kelly MacDonald’s ‘I Only See Shadows’ at the London Fringe Festival, June 18th to 28th.
Life is not easy for January Banting. When she’s not dealing with discouraged and angry people in her job at the Adjustment to Blindness Centre, Jan is enduring the fear of dangerous walks home after dark and other daily challenges faced by a person with restricted vision. And now she has this new client, Joe. There is something mysterious and shadowy about Joe. The ‘accident’ that caused Joe’s loss of vision he keeps a secret, but why? And then there is the attraction between them, ill advised yet irresistible. Jan is quickly falling in love with her secretive client Joe, but what is it about Joe’s past that he has to hide? Jan will find out, but the answer is not one she expects or wants.
