Cold Comfort by Owen McCafferty
Conversations with our parents. There are those we have around the kitchen table. There are those we have in the car. And there are those we have late at night. But there are those that we never have. Because of fear. Because of what those conversations might reveal about our parents or about ourselves...
Cold Comfort tells the story of Kevin Toner, a bricklayer living in a self-imposed exile in England, who returns to Belfast after a 15 year absence. He has a bone to pick, and he is determined to have a conversation with his father that will leave no stone unturned. In fact, this is going to be the first meaningful conversation they will have ever had together.
Fly on the Wall Theatre's critically acclaimed production of Cold Comfort from the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival was remounted at the Tarragon Theatre in 2014. The show ran from April 24 - May 4, 2014. It was directed by Rod Ceballos, featured David Mackett as Kevin Toner, and was stage managed by Allison Bjerkseth. Matt Armour was the Studio Technician.
It was a Canadian Actors’ Equity Association production under the Artists’ Collective Policy.
