by Edward Bond

In Association with  EOS Theatre and Theatre Bassaris,  
A part of the 2011 Toronto International Fringe Festival

July 7th-17th, 2011.


SAVED is a disturbingly violent and shockingly funny look at lower class British youth desensitized to sex and violence. Set at the height of rave culture and the cusp of our current era, amidst ourmedia influenced society, this retelling of Bond’s modern classic reveals the timelessness and universality of the play that abolished censorship in England.

Saved played to sold out houses and won the Patrons’ Pick and Best of Venue at the 2011 Toronto International Fringe Festival. 


**** 1/2. Under the direction of Jack Grinhaus, cast members give strong, gutsy and often hard to watch performances. Saved simply can’t be ignored... Put this one on your Toronto Fringe hit list! – Theatromania.


Jack Grinhaus's directing is sharp, intense, and evocative in bringing to life Bond's group of constantly-bickering volatile youths. - Jordan Bimm NOW Magazine.

Truly creative choices in staging and set movement as well as choosing actors who aren’t afraid to be ugly are becoming Grinhaus’s trademarks. There is not a wasted moment on this stage.   - Mooney on Theatre
