Benefit for the Artist Emergency Fund

Due to high demand, the Artist Emergency Fund, administered through the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council, is short of funds. The Artist Emergency Fund is available to any worker in the arts and cultural community experiencing catastrophic circumstances. The Resource Centre for the Arts Theatre Company has generously offered to donate the proceeds of their preview of "In On It" by Daniel McIvor on January 31, 2006 to the Artist Emergency Fund. Please show your support by attending if you can.

IN ON IT - L.S.P.U. Hall - January 31st - February 3rd, 2007

“In On It” is a funny, touching, whirling narrative that interweaves three stories: you’ll see two lovers trying to make a relationship work. You will see a man who is terminally ill and making plans for the end. And you’ll witness two men trying to write a play. All three stories come together in this brilliant piece written by 2006 Governor General Award winner Daniel MacIvor (who recently staged his new play “How it Works” at the Magnetic North theatre festival in St. John’s) to create an immensely entertaining and poignant play that deals with trying to feel in control of a world where accidents happen. Where your relationships, your work, your play… your entire life can change suddenly, completely, and irrevocably. The play is directed by Mark White, and is performed by Jason Card and Philip Goodridge - two actors who will play 10 characters in the span of 75 minutes… characters that will make you laugh, cry, and most importantly let you "In On It" - on just how precious and fragile life can be.
