Carrie: The Musical
50% Fruit Theatre, under the direction of Zachary Parsons-Lozinski, is an independent theatre company dedicated to producing fierce, shocking and thought provoking interpretations of well known, and cult-classic theatre.
Last August, they brought you a punk-rock exploitation b-film interpretation of August Strindberg's naturalistic tragedy "MISS JULIE", which was met with excited reactions:
"Parsons-Lozinski is full of sexual tension and sexual menace as the predatory, would-be-puppet-master Jean. Janine Hodder gives her Christine a controlled edge of menace which is gripping. And Kerry Johnson is a revelation as Miss Julie... one of the finest things I've seen all this Fringe Festival." - Paula Simons (Edmonton Journal)
Pick of the Fringe - Paula Simons (Edmonton Journal)
"Inexplicably odd..." - Mel Priestley (Vue Weekly)
