Sweet, the Breath of Children - 12 Ave Drama at Odd Duck Studio

Sweet, the Breath of Children
Odd Duck Studio
September 13 – 29, 2007
Tickets and Information

A lighthearted play Sweet, the Breath of Children is not. An intense and visceral play it is. Written by premiering playwright Neil Ferron, Sweet is a punch in the stomach that somehow makes you want more.

A twisted and abusive home for thirteen-year-old Maeve (Melissa Fenwick) and eight-year-old Maggie (Molly Tomhave) is suddenly invaded by a third party, Stephen (Bill Badgely), who seems to be a bit too uncomfortable in his own skin to be able to handle the situation he discovers. Meanwhile ‘the help,’ Ruta (Samantha Underwood) seems to be full of anything but her title. After an hour of perplexed fascination with the world of the play, the second act welcomes Ophelia’s gravediggers – the two movers (Andrew Farjo and Joe Feeney). Beyond that, you’ll have to see the play to learn more.

Directed by Suzannah Rogan, Sweet, the Breath of Children is the premier show for 12Ave Drama – a new theater group in town. After seeing Rogan’s work with Sweet and Ferron’s playwriting skill, this group deserves a lot of recognition. The cast and show as a whole have no weak points. There are no details that were overlooked by the creative and production teams. This show is definitely worth seeing – but it ends quickly, so get your tickets now on
