“The joy of Theatre SKAM’s The Wedding Pool is its sheer theatricality, in the fresh and inventive way it has been put together.” – The Toronto Star
Rumble’s legendary showcase for new and emerging artists returns with Victoria’s Theatre SKAM and The Wedding Pool.
Three single friends stuck in unsatisfactory jobs and unsatisfactory lives place a bet as to who will marry first. They agree to contribute $50 a month each to a joint bank account and the winner will collect the pool as a wedding present. When one of them forms a fledgling relationship with the bank teller who opens their joint account, the other two are forced to confront their ideas on loneliness and personal responsibility. A dangerous new comedy that shifts in time, place, and possibility, about our greatest fears: love, death, sex, marriage, and telephones.
