with action and suspense to spare.” – Toronto Star
"Hitchcock meets The Twilight Zone... There is a creepy undertone
of barely controlled madness and more than one occasion where
you will feel your skin crawl. -- Edmonton Sun
Starry Night Entertainment (White People, Mistakes Were Made) in association with The Bridge Theatre Company presents DualMinds Productions' U.S. Premiere of ANY NIGHT. Winner of 5 Toronto Now Awards (Outstanding Production, New Play, Direction, Performances, & Design), this romantic thriller is written and performed by Daniel Arnold & Medina Hahn and directed by Ron Jenkins (Bash'd). Previews begin June 2 at The LABA Theatre at The 14th Street Y with opening night slated for Wednesday, June 8.

The award-winning production features sound by Gord Heal, lighting by David Fraser, set and props by Peter Pokorny, costumes by Erin Macklem, stage management by Jennifer Swan, and a voiceover by Brian Linds.
