This weekend, we continue our interviews with the cast of The Thrill of the Chase. On Friday, we spoke to Ryan Barrentine who confessed to the work that still needs to be done prior to opening night this Thursday, February 16th. Ryan expressed his familiarity with some the situation his character Nicky finds himself in as well as having to rehearse other moments that are just “…quite grotesque.” Read his full interview here and purchase your tickets here to judge for yourself how ‘grotesque’ these characters can get.
Today, we catch up with another wonderful talent gracing the stage, Jenna D’Angelo. On her break between rehearsal, she spill the beans on why she loves her character Faith, how she’s conquering the climax of the play, and why it would be worth your time to stick around after the show for a drink (or two).
As promised, we are sitting down with each of the artist responsible for bringing Mad Dog’s next production, The Thrill of the Chase, opening this Thursday February 16th. We last spoke to Heather Kelley, our Literary Manager who shared with us why this play stood out from the many submissions we received and why despite it’s frequent comparison to Mamet and LaBute, the play is not misogynistic.

Perversion. Brutality. Debauchery. What else are friends for?
The Thrill Of The Chase explores a volatile, highly complex relationship between two lifelong friends; the carefree, womanising playboy Charlie, and the hard-working, timid Nicky, who share a stunning penthouse apartment in the heart of the city. When Nicky unexpectedly announces his intentions to turn his back on the bachelor lifestyle and marry his troubled girlfriend Izzy, the affronted Charlie suggests a perverse wager, which will ultimately threaten not only their friendship, but their very existence…
