ELEGIES - A DOUBLE BILL OF MONOLOGUES FROM RICOCHET THEATRE
Supported by 53New
2nd August 2022
53New is a platform and initiative, as a part of our charitable activities, providing theatre space and/or rehearsal rooms at a reduced rate where those starting out can tread the boards in front of an audience, try their work out and play safely without breaking the bank and in a safe, supportive space.
Ricochet Theatre presents a double bill of monologues navigating grief: Intricate Rituals by Seth Douglas and The Same Rain That Falls on Me by Logan Jones.
🎭 Intricate Rituals navigates queer longing, Catholic guilt, bugs and necromancy. Siken is a gay student who is hopelessly in love with her straight best friend, Dee. When tragedy unexpectedly strikes her life, Siken’s grief turns her down a darker and increasingly unnatural path.
🎭 The Same Rain That Falls On Me considers the connection between the effects of climate change on the planet and the effects of bereavement on a family, especially when that bereavement is avoidable. It’s a powerful and witty monologue about family, grief, and finding hope in the face of overwhelming uncertainty.
Ricochet Theatre is a fledgling theatre company founded by recent York University theatre graduates with a shared passion for new works. They play with stories told in unique ways, drawing on the political and environmental situations our generation is facing today. They are a low budget but big imagination company scattered all over the country conducting rehearsals both remotely on zoom and in their living rooms in person. Ricochet Theatre is proudly supported by the York Performance Award and 53New.
