The Crevice, the theatre/sitcom hybrid from the Bus Stop Theatre Writers Circle, returns online on October 20 with the live broadcast of part two of its second season.
The Crevice is inspired by and dedicated to both the broke, overworked and lonely parents who raised my friends and me and to those friends themselves and how our environments shaped us.
The Crevice pays homage to the mid-century comedies that raised a generation of latchkey kids as it follows the millennial misadventures of Ingrid and Kate, juggling the precarious mental health of their mothers, Anna and Charlene, alcoholism, and a Rolodex of male admirers. Their lives are invaded by the increasingly distressing presence of the titular Crevice FM and its shock-jock host.
“The Crevice is inspired by and dedicated to both the broke, overworked and lonely parents who raised my friends and me and to those friends themselves and how our environments shaped us,” says series creator Rebecca Falvey. “The first season of The Crevice was filmed in 2021 but was built around material I had written in 2017. Suffice it to say, I’ve been eager to continue the stories of these characters for a long time now.”
For those looking to get caught up with the exploits of Kate, Ingrid, and the rest of The Crevice characters, season one and the first part of season two are now available to stream online.
Filmed in front of a live studio audience at Halifax’s Bus Stop Theatre Co-op, season two, part two of the independent Norman Lear-styled sitcom, will air live on October 20 and October 27 at 8:00 pm ADT. Episodes will be available to live stream the following Mondays at thecrevice.ca.
