SHIT SONG FOR SOME ISLAND
by KYLE CAPSTICK
After last year's bold and highly divisive Of Shapes Transformed by Love, Aim for the Tangent once again teams up with Kyle Capstick and Newborn Theatre in this new play about identity, place, and the purgatory of home.
Fiddler wants you to believe that there’s something about this island. Jane knows she’s in love with it despite never having been there. Jane’s sister Ryann doesn’t share her love. Worried that Jane will leave the city for the island, Ryann asks Duana to convince Jane that the island isn’t worth loving. If the air on the island is music, will Jane ever play it?
This play follows the debut of Kyle's second Toronto production, I Don't Want to Dance with Straight People, which played in August of this year.
Shit Song for Some Island premiered in January 2015 at the Highland Arts Theatre in Sydney, NS. A Toronto production directed by the author will debut in March, running March 26th - 28th and April 2nd - 4th at Fraser Studios.
