Acclaimed playwright and Edmonton native Brad Fraser (Kill Me Now, Love and Human Remains) wrote [email protected] for all the “excellent middle-aged actresses who were having trouble finding parts.” When Olivia loses control at her fiftieth birthday party, her three best friends decide to intervene once and for all, much to the irritation of Olivia and her long-term partner Nora. But is she the only one battling a demon or does each of these women face an addiction of one kind or another? [email protected] is a raw and darkly comedic portrayal of turning fifty in contemporary society, and of the friendships we can’t live without. Premiered in 2011 at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. Its Canadian premiere was in 2016 by Vancouver’s Ruby Slippers Theatre and Zee Zee Theatre.
