TORONTO -
Kevin Toner returns to Belfast to confront his father after a 15-year absence. He has a bone to pick, and he is determined to have a conversation that will leave no stone unturned. There's only one problem. His father is dead. And lying in a coffin in the front room. Fly on The Wall Theatre’s critically acclaimed FRINGE hit COLD COMFORT plays April 24-May 4, 2014 at the Tarragon Near Studio. Tickets are available via 416-531-1827416-531-1827 or  tarragontheatre.com/tickets

Awarded Outstanding Performance, Outstanding Direction (NOW Magazine), and Staff Pick (Mooney on Theatre) during the 2013 Toronto Fringe, this remount of the “must-see” solo show is making a triumphant return. COLD COMFORT features  “an electrifying performance” by David Mackett (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Touchmark Theatre; Half Life, Rose Theatre; The Good Thief, The Weir, MacKenzieRo; plus performances with the Tony-nominated Willow Cabin Theatre Company, TheatreWorks/USA, and Kentucky Repertory Theatre), under the direction of theatre veteran Rod Ceballos (God of Carnage, Sudbury Theatre Centre; My High Heeled Life & Inge Snapshots, Toronto Fringe 2013), Shakespeare Festivals of Chicago, Cincinnati and Idaho; Virginia Shakespeare Festival; Rose Theatre/Flower City Theatre Festival; and BirdLand Theatre). It seems the conversation is not yet over.

Laced with dark humour and littered with Belfast idiom, expletives and drunken ramblings, award-winning Irish playwright Owen McCafferty’s COLD COMFORT is a stark, tragic, and compassionate masterpiece. It is a powerful and compelling tale of one man’s search for inner redemption, a reconciliation of past wrongs, for light shone on missing moments in his life and relationships …at the one moment none of it is possible.

Alludes to the position of being able to freely observe.] - Based in Toronto since 2012, Fly on the Wall Theatre produces plays of high quality which have seldom been seen, in small, intimate theatre spaces in order to maximize the sense of connection between performer and audience.

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 …
