Event Notes

× Elly and ThreebyZero in Association with Larry Silverberg presents

Written and Directed by Eli Pasic

Shots fired! A new satirical comedy comes to the Tarragon Theatre with all guns blazing!
This gut-busting potpourri of madness, reproach, and frivolity is being presented at the Tarragon Theatre for a limited run of 5 performances, April 11-14, 2024.

FRIENDLY FIRE is the latest offering of Toronto writer Eli Pasic. A graduate of the distinguished Berklee College of Music, Pasic is a writer and director of comedic plays and musicals who has written shows with people by the likes of Henry Krieger (composer of Dreamgirls). His one-man musical, The Exorcist: An Operetta, was recently featured at the 2023 Toronto Fringe Festival. Seven short satirical comedies rolled into 70 minutes, FRIENDLY FIRE sets its target on the time-tested absurdities that modern society holds near and dear to its heart. Toxic workplace romantic entanglements, the impossibility of other human beings, theatre people, activists, God, corporations, TED Talks, porn, and Oedipus Rex—these are the targets, and punchlines are the bullets. Knuckles are rapped and wrists are slapped in this sidesplitting admonishment of the insanity and inhumanity of humans.

RECOMMENDED for ages 18+ | ADVISORY: Mature subject matter
