Comic Thriller LITTLE ONE to Make US Premiere at FringeNYC, 8/20
After a sold-out and critically acclaimed run at the Vancouver Fringe 2014, award-winning and innovative director AMIEL GLADSTONE (FringeNYC Alumni Louis & Dave in a car, Zastrozzi, and The Black Box) re-teams with actor/producers MARISA SMITH and DANIEL ARNOLD (FringeNYC Excellence Award Tuesdays & Sundays) to mount the wryly comic thriller LITTLE ONE at FringeNYC, a play by HANNAH MOSCOVITCH - "Canada's Hottest Young Playwright" (National Post, Globe & Mail, Now Magazine).When 4-year-old Claire is adopted into the family,6-year-old Aaron has to learn to "love" his new monster of a sister. Told through the now adult voices of these adopted siblings, Little One weaves a story of childhood horror and teenage trauma into a twisted, wryly funny, and ultimately haunting experience. One that asks how long you'd let a psychopath control your life ... and what you'd do to regain it. LITTLE ONE will be performed at 64 East 4th Street Theater on the following schedule:
• THU Aug 20 7:00 - 8:00
• FRI Aug 21 3:30 - 4:30
• SUN Aug 23 8:30 - 9:30
• WED Aug 26 5:15 - 6:15
• FRI Aug 28 2:45 - 3:45
