Free Play in Workshop: Little Goat Theatre's Parts To Whole February 24 2014 in Toronto

From a media release:

Little Goat Theatre Company Presents:
February 24, 2014 at Canadian Stage in Toronto
Workshop Presentation and Publication of New Play by Adam Seelig

“Toronto’s enterprising One Little Goat Theatre Company” (New York Times), with support from Canadian Stage, is pleased to announce a workshop presentation of Parts to Whole, a new play written and directed by Artistic Director Adam Seelig.

The performance is one night only, Monday, February 24, at 8 p.m. at the Canadian Stage Main Rehearsal Hall, 26 Berkeley Street. Admission is free.

Sochi Fried and Ben Irvine star in Parts to Whole as a couple discussing and exploring their intimacy in ways so simple as to be radical.

Recently seen together in One Little Goat’s The Charge of the Expormidable Moose, Fried and Irvine were praised for their “great chemistry onstage” (Charlebois Post) as well as their “enchanting” “extraordinary” “hilarious” “moving” “splendid” “tour-de-force” performances (Now, Stage Door, Torontoist, Globe and Mail). Fried’s other recent credits include The Misanthrope (Guild Festival Theatre) and Stencilboy (2014 Next Stage), and Irvine’s include Alzheimer that Ends Heimer (Summerworks) and No Great Mischief (Tarragon, Thousand Islands).

Parts to Whole is being published in print and as an e-book by BookThug, now celebrating its 10th anniversary in innovative Canadian publishing. This marks BookThug’s third publication with One Little Goat. The book link is:

Much like Seelig’s previous play (Like the First Time, praised in the Globe and Mail as “striking, fascinating and darkly comic”), Parts to Whole is written without punctuation so that the actors may choose how they emphasize the text. The unorthodox spacing on each page is generated by the vertical alignment of certain letters and words. Parts to Whole also marks Seelig’s further exploration into his notion of “charactor”.

One Little Goat Theatre Company is North America’s only company devoted to contemporary poetic theatre.  It “has done audiences a huge service” (Toronto Star) through its highly interpretive, provocative approach to international plays. The company’s Canadian and world premieres have garnered praise from the New York Times, Globe and Mail, Economist, Now and others. More information on the company is available at

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
