All the Little Animals I Have Eaten was to have its Toronto premiere on March 26, 2020, at Toronto’s Crow’s Theatre in a production by Nightwood Theatre. 

Sadly, due to COVID-19, the show was pulled ten days before its first preview.

The production was to have featured the work of more than two dozen artists and collaborators. Keep Frozen salutes them all. 

From Nightwood’s site, 2020: A biting meditation on capitalism, consumption, precarity and hope in this latest dark comedy written and directed by Karen Hines.

Set in the extraordinarily modern bistro of an all-women’s condominium, All the Little Animals I Have Eaten follows a tender-hearted young server on the most harrowing shift of her life. With a stellar cast of comedic performers, this timely play examines the commodification of feminism, neo-liberalism, and the increasingly unattainable dream of catching a piece of the real estate pie.

“Hines is an inimitable creator in Canadian theatre, an incredibly visual writer with a singular sense of humour that’s insightful and twisted. Alarms should go off whenever she has a new work in town, especially after the harrowing real-estate horror story of her solo show Crawlspace.”
