PLEASE NOTE – THE FRIDAY, APRIL 29 PERFORMANCE OF “THREE SHORT PLAYS ABOUT NORTHROP FRYE” IS CANCELLED. SATURDAY’S SHOW IS STILL ON.
Because of a threat aimed at Riverview High School the school was closed for the day on Friday, April 29. Out of an abundance of caution we have decided to cancel Friday’s performance of “Three Short Plays About Northrop Frye”. Anyone holding a ticket please contact the Riverview Arts Centre to change it to tomorrow (Saturday, April 30) or to make other arrangements. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
“Three Short Plays About Northrop Frye” consists of plays about Northrop Frye’s life presented from different perspectives. “The Great Coda”, by Michael R. LeBlanc, focuses on Frye’s early life in Moncton and his triumphant return in his final years. “Temps Perdu at the Maple Leaf Lounge”, by Marc Chouinard and Marshall Button, recounts an imaginary meeting of Northrop Frye and Marshall Mcluhan at the Toronto Airport where they discuss their lives, their famous theories, and more. “Life of Frye”, written by Ron Kelly Spurles, covers Frye’s entire life in an energetic performance by three actors, playing multiple characters.
Presented in collaboration with the Frye Literary Festival.
