The Peterborough Theatre Guild is presenting a one-night-only encore performance of its award-winning production of Hannah Moscovitch’s dark family drama Little One, at 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 28th at the Guild Hall in Peterborough.
Directed by Lee Bolton and starring Peyton Le Barr and Chris Whidden in the lead roles of Aaron and Claire, Little One is a chilling look at what happens in the nicest of neighbourhoods and in the nicest of families, raising complex questions about good intentions, irreversible damage, and the nature of love.
The play was originally presented from October 16th to 19th at the Guild Hall in Peterborough.
Little One was the Peterborough Theatre Guild’s entry in the Eastern Ontario Drama League’s annual fall One Act Festival, which was held this year from November 8th to 10th in Perth.
Along with Little One, the three-day festival presented eight plays by community theatre groups Studio Theatre Perth, Theatre Night in Merrickville, Domino Theatre (Kingston), Rural Root Theatre (Ottawa), Belleville Theatre Guild, Old Church Theatre (Trenton), and Rural Rogues Theatre (Haliburton County).
Awards for the festival, which was adjudicated by Annette Procunier, were presented on Sunday, November 10th at Code’s Mill on the Park in Perth. The Peterborough Theatre Guild picked up four awards for Little One, including the Best Production Award, the Best Director Award for Lee Bolton, and Acting Awards for Chris Whidden and Peyton Le Barr for their performances as Aaron and Claire.
The Peterborough Theatre Guild is presenting a one-night-only encore performance of Little One at 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 28th at the Guild Hall (364 Rogers St., Peterborough).
