There are just four shows left of the Off-Broadway hit Fifty Words, currently playing at the Freestanding Room.
Here’s what people are saying:
“Striking … intimate … bare bones, minimalistic theatre that has been stripped down to the essentials: two actors, a stage and a script.”
—Alex Woolcott (The Rover)
“Authentic and genuine … the audience feels like a fly on the wall. If you enjoy listening in on people’s conversations, then Fifty Words is the play for you. There are fifty reasons why you should make your way to The Freestanding Room.”
—Amanda Dafniotis (The Concordian)
“Loved the text. Loved the performances. Raw, honest … my pick of the week.”
—Davyn Ryall (Arts Notebook, Radio Centreville)
“Excellent, simple, unpretentious work. All students of the craft must catch this.”
—Patrick Goddard (MainLine Theatre, Montreal Fringe Festival, Quebec Drama Federation
“What I love about this space is that it’s so intimate … there’s no escape. It’s great to have a venue like that in Montreal.”
—Eric Sukhu (Upstage, CKUT) from a preview for Fifty Words
Fifty Words runs Wednesday through Saturday at 8pm. Seats are very limited for this final week of the run … if you’re interested in seeing the show, you’d be advised to book ahead.
