The Shimmering Verge ()

Produced by

Art Thing and Prairie Fire, Please

Director: Karthy Chin
Playwright: Molly Peacock


Studio 21


April 4th, 2019 – April 13th, 2019


The Shimmering Verge juxtaposes verse and prose in an exploration of the fine line between metaphor and reality in life and in art. In Molly’s own words: “Like stones into a ring the poems are set among stories, confidences, little elucidations–funny, wry, sexy, sad, and shocking.” From love, sex and marriage to loss, death and spirituality, the play uncovers the poetry in everyday life.

The play will be performed in double bill with readings from a selection of dynamic Toronto page and stage poets.
