The Thin Grey Line

by Blaine Newton

An aging clown, a shabby Shakespearean, and a Lothario well past his prime walk into an audition — it’s not a joke; it’s reality. Old actors never die, they just whine about the lack of opportunities.  Read by John Wright, Richard Gishler, Glenn Nelson and Jessy Ardern. Stage directions read by Ken Agrell-Smith.

Blaine is a playwright, sketch writer, improviser and sometime engineer. He is a cast member of Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre as well as Red Deer’s Improv Jelly. This, combined with his engineering training, allows him to alter current reality by day while creating alternate realities at night. As a playwright, his work has been seen by well under a million people, and includes Edmonton’s Shadow Theatre production of Bravo and Oral Fixations (co-written with Leslie Greentree) with Red Deer’s Ignition Theatre. His writing has been described by the late Pope Benedict as “filled with warmth, particularly when burned.”
