A secret location
Oct. 14 to 30, 2014

Pandemic Theatre is a brash, young company that wants to do something different while making socio-political statements. Murder on Ossington is about violence.

The audience is limited to about 10 people, and the play is mounted in a secret location. Audience members take turns visiting different rooms, each of which has a scene of potential violence, even the possibility of murder.

The point is, that each scene could be routinely happening around a large city, on a street like Ossington. A girl being stalked, a couple on a date, a wife suspicious of her husband, an S&M encounter, and a racist man taking a bath. The scenes can be taken as unrelated, but they could also be linked.

For the most part, the acting by this young company is strong which anchors the vignettes in reality. It’s also the kind of show that is fun to watch because of the unpredictable nature.

Murder on Ossington continues at a secret location until Oct. 30.
