'By A Thread' at Tarragon Theatre with Diane Flacks.

By A Thread

By Diane Flacks

 “Astro”-projection, bluesy godmothers, irrational fears, guitar solos, hidden secrets and flying paint – welcome to Rosie’s way out.

A brilliant young “fire artists” reckons with her unfettered imagination, “painter’s block”, and an impending visit from her past. Fierce, hilarious and wounded, Rose plays out many young women’s darkest fears with redemptive power.

Great writing, great performing, great theatre…Diane Flacks, remember the name.

Richard Ouzounian, CBC Radio Toronto, ON

…impressive verbal, physical and emotional dexterity.

Vit Wagner, Toronto Star Toronto, ON

…terrific writing and performing and well deserving of standing O’s
