Presented as part of Why Not Theatre’s RISER Project

About Wring the Roses
Are you coming to Stephanie’s bachelorette? I really need to confirm numbers ASAP. Let’s get TURNT, drink till we drop, all before she ties the noose lol. Don’t expect me to bring you a dildo, you really need to bring your own.

The creators of the SummerWorks hit BODY SO FLUORESCENT invite you to another explosive and dizzying night on the dance floor. WRING THE ROSES follows a group of girls whose bond of friendship wilts over the course of Stephanie’s last night of freedom.

About RISER Project
RISER Project is a collaborative producing model for theatre artists and companies to create and present new work. It was developed by Ravi Jain, Owais Lightwala and Kelly Read of Why Not Theatre in order to address some of the challenges of producing independent theatre in Toronto, including the high cost of production, difficulty of building audiences and inefficient use of resources and infrastructure.

RISER Project 2019 is made possible thanks to the generous support of RBC Foundation, TD Bank Group, and the Government of Canada. RISER Project was first piloted with the support of the Toronto Arts Council.
