The Pit
The Pit

 In this funny, fast-paced, and surreal send-up of domestic bliss, a husband and wife must negotiate both their marriage and the growing, bottomless pit that’s opened up in their bedroom. “4 STARS: Like the fringe equivalent of a jazz masterpiece, The Pit sweeps its viewers up in swirling dialogue eddies, riffs on a moment, and poetic storytelling. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun.” –CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp). “4 STARS: An engaging, smart script delivered with precision & intensity. Ace!” –The Edmonton Journal. “I could praise this play all day long!” –Production Ottawa. Starring Martin Dockery & Vanessa Quesnelle, written by Martin Dockery.
