MONSTER will stream online from The Monster Collective

There’s something exciting happening that you don’t want to miss: MONSTER. A 10-minute dev segment to stream online from Wednesday, March 23 through Sunday, March 27, 2022!

MONSTER was conceived by STEPHANIE GRAHAM (Fun Home, Gray Gardens, Wild Party – The Musical Stage Company) and composer and arranger KEVIN WONG (In Real Life, Polly Peel). Joined by ELLEN DENNY (Life After) as story supervisor and playwright, and twelve extraordinary artists make up the collective: LYNDSEY BRITTEN (Charlottetown Festival), ALEXANDRA HERZOG (Stratford Festival), AISHA JARVIS (Globe Theatre), KELSEY LACOMBE (Rainbow Stage, Drayton Entertainment), KRISTA LEIS (Jesus Christ Superstar-Stratford Festival/Broadway), HAILEY LEWIS (Theatre Aquarius, Harry Potter/Mirvish), AYRIN MACKIE (Stratford Festival), KYLA MUSSELMAN (Stratford Festival), SARAH O’BRECHT (Charlottetown Festival), GENNY SERMONIA (Stratford and Shaw Festival), MICHELE SHUSTER (Grand Theatre), NATASHA STRILCHUK (Neptune Theatre).

The MONSTER in the room is the embodiment of our subconscious mind which is not at odds with any of us. He accepts everything we say to ourselves and seeks to make it happen. Blocking us from our truth.

Supported by the Digital Now initiative of the Canada Council for the Arts Strategic Funds, the Monster Collective will premiere this ten-minute short film of what will become a longer theatrical work. The play was filmed at the Firehall Studio Theater at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque, Ontario.
