Howland Company to Present '52 PICKUP' with Toronto Fringe in July

The Howland Company is proud to announce its inaugural production and Toronto premiere of 52 PICK-UP in association with The Toronto Fringe Festival.

52 cards. 52 scenes. 1 complicated relationship.

In a blend of sharp writing and improvisation 52 PICK UP swerves from romantic comedy to heartbreak at the drop of a card, as two people navigate through their relationship. How it works: 52 scene titles are written on an ordinary deck of playing cards. At the top of each show two actors toss the cards in the air and the story unfolds in the order in they are picked up. No two shows will ever be the same!

Award winning playwrights, TJ Dawe (Medicine, The F Word/What if?) and Rita Bozi (Trouser Parts, Bloodline), highlight the hysterical and heartbreaking truth about falling in love in this 75-minute show.

Directed by Courtney Ch'ng Lancaster & Paolo Santalucia (both recently seen in Soulpepper Theatre's Idiot's Delight and Of Human Bondage), 52 PICK-UP features an exciting alternating cast including; Alex Crowther, Ruth Goodwin, James Graham, Cameron Laurie, Adrian Morningstar, Hallie Seline, and Kristen Zaza.

Where and When?

July 2nd - July 13th, 2014 at The Tarragon Theatre in association with The Toronto Fringe Festival.
