Themantics bows Fraser’s ‘Snake’

'Super' scribe bring 'Fridge' to Big Apple

The Themantics Group presents the New York premiere of “Snake in Fridge” by Brad Fraser, the Canadian scribe behind play “Poor Super Man” and pic “Unidentified Human Remains,” based on his play “Love and Human Remains.”

Performances run April 14-May 8 at the 14th Street Y Theater.

Inspired by Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Snake in Fridge” centers on a group of young misfits living in a creepy Victorian house. When one of the housemates accepts a snake to cover a debt, the snake disappears and bizarre things begin to happen. Eventually, they begin to wonder if it is the snake or the spirit of the house that is haunting them.

Themantics, founded in 2002, is dedicated to producing a season of projects around a particular theme. It was founded by producing director Jay Aubrey and artistic director Blake Lawrence. “Money! or Morals?” is the theme for the 2004-05 season, which began in October with a developmental production of Allison Moore’s “Hazard County,” recently chosen for Actors Theater of Louisville’s Humana Festival.
