'Peach' is not your typical girl-meets-boy story.
Peach is a young woman longing for love. True Love. But she is about to discover that it isn't everything that her television makes it out to be. A charming and gritty coming-of-age tale coming to you at The Refinery January 25-28 and February 1-4 2018.
Tickets now available at www.ontheboards.ca
Inspired by the journal entries she'd been writing since the age of 7, Danielle Roy brings to life true-to-her events from adolescence. Vancouver's Plank Magazine says:
"Danielle Roy spins a cheeky, giddy tale, woven with misadventures and brazen, laughable revelations of teen love. Peach, played masterfully by Alex Hartshorn, holds the audience captive".
"Those who caught Peach's opening night were left awestruck, clapping their hearts out as the theatre turned dark. Hartshorn's performance was woven with charm and bluster, casting an urgent, emotive spell. With amusing props and compelling dialogue, Peach is a poignant [...] story of love gone wrong told in a fresh, new way you won't want to miss.”
- Jenna Diamante, Plank Magazine
'Peach' first premiered in 2016, when it toured across the Canadian Fringe circuit making waves at Regina, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver festivals.
