Tire Swing by Curtis te Brinke
World Premiere of queer monster story unleashed on Kensington in October!
Kevin has gone missing. Three children are left to grow up in the spaces he left behind as a strange shadow consumes their town. Tire Swing is a queer science fiction horror story about the things we leave behind, and the things that go bump in the night.
Set in an intimate transformed space in Kensington Market, Tire Swing plunges audiences into a new kind of coming of age story about a monster, a missing boy, and a mystery bigger than the town in the middle of it.
Tire Swing is led by a queer team of artists. Written by Curtis te Brinke (Strangeness and Breath, BINGE) and directed by Sadie Epstein-Fine (Brantwood, Eraser, Freda and Jem's Best of the Week). It features Dora nominee, Francois Macdonald (Zinspires de Puissance, Our Town), Patrick Fowler (Antigone), Jocelyn Adema (Molly Bloom, You Know I Know) and Nikki Haggart (Being Human, Fatal Vows).
Tire Swing is the fifth play produced as a part of Filament Incubators 2016 season, including its sister show Swan, dark coming of age fable,Paradise Comics and recent Toronto Fringe Festival hit Rowing. Featuring dramaturgical work by Cole Vincent and Andrea Romaldi, this fall join Epigraph Collective and Filament Incubator as they unleash a monster on Kensington Market.
