Saved played to sold out houses and won the Patrons’ Pick and Best of Venue at the 2011 Toronto International Fringe Festival. SAVED is a disturbingly violent and shockingly funny look at lower class British youth desensitized to sex and violence. Set at the height of rave culture and the cusp of our current era, amidst our media influenced society, this retelling of Bond’s modern classic reveals the timelessness and universality of the play that abolished censorship in England.

**** 1/2. Under the direction of Jack Grinhaus, all nine cast members give strong, gutsy and often hard to watch performances. Saved simply can’t be ignored... Definitely put this one on your Toronto Fringe hit list! - Theatromania

Jack Grinhaus's directing is sharp, intense, and evocative in bringing to life Bond's group of constantly-bickering volatile youths. - Jordan Bimm NOW Magazine

Bleak, Brutal... and not for the faint of hearted!!! - Life with More Cowbell

Superb performances... all the grit here is skillfully done that it will likely be one of the better shows at the fringe this year. Truly creative choices in staging and set movement as well as choosing actors who aren’t afraid to be ugly are becoming Grinhaus’s trademarks. It is clear that this is a production that refuses to be taken lightly. There is not a wasted moment on this stage.- Winston Soon - Mooney on Theatre
