Inch of Your Life: The Trilogy

Inch of Your Life is a fast-paced ensemble comedy that features a core cast of eight recurring characters and touches on themes of family, relationships and identity, examining how well we know ourselves and the people in our lives.

Originally workshopped in Toronto, the series received its US premiere at Edgemar Theatre in Santa Monica, California.  It debuted at the 2016 Toronto Fringe Festival where it was awarded Patron's Pick. It was then re mounted as a trilogy in Theatre Passe Muraille's Backspace from March to July 2018 in The Theatre Circuit's inaugural season. 

"binge-worthy theatre!"
"the cast is simply stunning!"
"Pagliaroli has written a play for the Netflix generation"
"incredibly hilarious characters"
"hilarious, relatable, nuanced"

- Mooney on Theatre

"Inch of your LIFE‘s pilot is a cleanly directed, excellently paced introduction to a memorable set of characters played with verve and intensity by a cast with great chemistry."

- My Entertainment World

“Inch of Your Life generates maximum energy from minimalist set design, thanks to whip-smart characters, laugh-out-loud situations and arresting performances... all powered by a propulsive drumbeat. A fresh, funny, fast night out at the theatre.”

So what’s the truth?  What happens next when you discover your closest friends and family aren’t who you thought they were?  Sam knows one thing for certain…things will never be the same with his brothers since he believes they’re the reason he was being held for ransom.  Or were they?  Perception versus reality is the big debate this time around.  Watch as each character continues to inch their way through life in The Last Bit.
