Fly on the Wall - an unnoticed observer of a particular situation (Oxford Dictionary of Phrase and Fable). Alludes to the position of being able to freely observe a situation (The Phrase Finder).
July, 2004 - after having just appeared in a performance of The Weir by Conor McPherson at Rower's Pub in Toronto, the actor was approached by a friend, an audience member, who told him: "I felt like a Fly on the Wall". It is that intimacy and connection with our audience that we seek.
Based in Toronto, Fly on the Wall Theatre Co. was founded in 2012. Our mandate is simply to produce a play that has grabbed our attention...a play that has rarely been produced...that has fallen of the map...that may be under appreciated...and as a consequence, a play that has seldom been seen.
Artists who have worked at Fly on the Wall Theatre include: Rod Ceballos, Rosemary Dunsmore, Charlotte Gowdy, Patrick Garrow, Adrian Griffin, Richard Harte, David Mackett, Nicole Maroon, Suzette McCanny, Katharine McLeod, Viv Moore, and Kelly Penner
