  • evalynparry.com / Breakfast is served
    into an hour of funny painful and often gripping drama Xtra Magazine and EYE Magazine Moment by moment this 70 minute creation is utterly compelling even if Breakfast â s dark absurdist progression eventually defies description adventurers who surrender to this play about transformation will be rewarded by visceral theatre Like an orgasm itâ s hard to describe but you know when youâ ve had one EYE Magazine People are calling the show creepy sexy dark fascinating complex gripping suspenseful and moving It delves into the female psyche explores ideas about self help about transformation intimacy celebrity and voyeurism and lots of other things too Through many many ideas creative collaborators crazy physical explorations fundraising rewrites and hours and months later we have created a one hour show that we are all incredibly proud of Even several friends that claim to generally dislike theatre have told us they loved it We hope you too can come experience Breakfast with us before it closes on JUNE 1st Here are a coupla links to what is being said both critically and in cyber conversation Xtra Review of BREAKFAST by David Bateman EYE Review of BREAKFAST by Gord McLaughlin The Aunties in conversation

    œauthentic selfâ in an Oprah Winfrey world of obligatory self improvement where â œnew ageâ spirituality and self help is consumed like take out where â œhappinessâ is marketed in the form of a pill where people are alone and lonely even within densely populated urban settings physically isolated yet hyper technologically connected where talk show hosts and self help gurus hold more power than any church where the cult of â œIâ has never had more members or less meaning and where women are the prime target and prime consumers of the self help 20 minute workout instant make over industry Breakfast uses the everyday custom of â œbreaking the fastâ to explore the notion of â œa fresh startâ Can one ever really change oneself Does societyâ s obsession with self actualization really produce lasting change Is it truly possible to start over We ask What does is mean to try and escape oneâ s past in a consumer driven disposable world where it costs more to repair something than to buy something new where hard drives hold more stories than a grandmother and memory can be purchased in the form of a microchip where human memory can be erased replaced or distorted by well meaning therapists by digital technology where weâ re told we have it better now than ever before in history that buying is the only power we need to succeed and consumption is not only our right but the ultimate satisfaction Breakfast poses the question can one ever truly escape oneâ s past In a fractured world where can one find wholeness We ask What does it mean to have an intimate encounter with a stranger in our paparazzi close up world of live webcasts and video phones where Photoshop can make anything possible
