NotaBle Acts presents "Model Wanted"

I rarely seem to photograph theatre very much now, but when I do it's always a great experience. Most Wanted is no exception, it's dark, intense tone and feel makes for some great imagery. Here's a little about the play before I post the images copied from the events page on Facebook.

The 2014 NotaBle Acts Mainstage Show is "Model Wanted" by Step Taylor, directed by Emma Tibaldo
7:30pm July 24-26, matinee 2pm July 26 at the Fredericton Playhouse

A stage thriller inspired by a real-life murder in Saint John, New Brunswick. Ross is a bright, charming teenager on the verge of graduating high school. His roommate Joy thinks he’s a good kid. His mother Loretta lives for him. So why is he drunk and posing for risqué photographs at a strange man’s home the night before his last exam?

The 2014 winner of the RBC Tarragon Emerging Playwrights’ Competition, "Model Wanted" is a fierce examination of poverty, substance abuse, and sexuality that forces us to ask what role society’s norms play in shaping its so-called monsters.

So for those that can't attend, these images are for you. I highly recommend seeing the show, the pictures can only do so much justice to the work being presented here.
