YLVIS wants to know what the fox says. Third Wall answers.
YLVIS may want to know what the fox says but Third Wall and Tolstoy has the answer.
Check out a sample of the dramatic readings from next Wednesday's Tolstoy's Treasures.
The Fox speaks!
The Empty Space is back for another year of eclectic and electric dramatic readings. When you think Tolstoy you think War And Peace! Who knew the writer of one of the longest stories ever would spend the last 33 years of his life writing short works. Electric actors Mary Ellis, Kristina Watt and James Richardson bring to life a mix of Tolstoy's short fiction in a dramatic reading. The Menacing Lunatic, After The Dance and If You Neglect A Fire, You Won't Put It Out, are but a few of the master writer's works. These short stories will be interspersed with fables such as the Gnat and The Lion, where the Spider gets the last laugh...or does he? The first in this year's Empty Space Series, the evening will continue the intimacy and energy of previous events such as Checkhov's Shorts and Beckett's Briefs.

In partnership with 100 Watt Productions, we are proud to present the Canadian Premiere of Michael Lesslie's Prince of Denmark as the final show for Third Wall's 2012-2013 season. The production is part of this year's Ottawa Fringe Festival. This imagined prequel of Hamlet will mark the inaugural season for the Company's Third Wall Academy (TWA), a newly formed youth wing. Intelligently crafted to be both accessible and respectful to audiences, the play follows a teenage Hamlet, Ophelia and Laertes as they rage against the roles handed down to them by their parents. The work honours the adolescent experience of identity struggle, without having to resort to ‘fake-speare‘ expressions, teen angst cliches, or referential hip hop gimmickry. As the characters become embroiled in youth-centric conflicts, the games of politics, passion, and power are exposed as being more than just the sole purview of adult life.
Please visit the TWA's Facebook page, Like us, and offer your support to
these very hard working and talented young theatre artists.
