Arielle Gray performs in three short absurdist plays that were written and directed by Luke Milton and feature original music by Steve Hearne; The Rise and Return of Verity Westlake, Lennie Lenape and the Secret Mystery of the Mysterious Secret Agent and The Invisible Bloodbath.
In the first play a Hollywood actress attempts to rebuild her career in a unique and most bizarre way following a terminal car accident. In the second play a ten year old girl scout goes in search of her missing father, who might just be a spy, and the final play introduces us to a young woman who just seeks attention, but does it in an extreme fashion. To say more about these three black comedies would spoil the surprises in store for later audiences.
Gray, with the odd voice over from Roderick Cairns, Steve Hearne and Tim Watts (The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik, Deep Sea Explorer), one in each of the pieces, creates three completely different and very believable characters. Her performances in all three roles are exceptional and this should be one of your picks this Fringe.
