“stunning effect…Thompson fully in command of each of the characters” Globe and Mail
Watching Glory Die is essential Canadian Theatre” Mooney on Theatre

Though deliberately fictional, Watching Glory Die takes a bold dramatic leap from recent news headlines re the treatment of chronically disturbed young women in our prison system to forge the kind of visceral lyricism that is the hallmark of Judith Thompson at her most powerful.

Four Stars“Dead Metaphor is likely going to be the most hilarious, most ferocious and most fearless play you’ll see in Toronto this year.” The Toronto Star

“wildly funny…the cast is terrific…I loved Dead MetaphorMooney on Theatre

Dean is a young ex-sniper, just back from Afghanistan, struggling to find work. His family is disintegrating before his eyes, his wife is ready to divorce him a second time, yet players on both ends of the political spectrum find Dean’s special talents oddly appealing. A killer comedy by a master playwright in top form.

Pacamambo3PACAMAMBO
by Wajdi Mouawad, translated by Shelley Tepperman
Directed by Ken Gass
Starring Kyra Harper, Amy Keating, Michelle Polak & Karen Robinson
January 18 to February 2, 2014
at The Citadel (308 Parliament Street)
English Language Premiere

Pacamambo is a lyrical, often funny and hugely life-affirming play about death. It tells the story of Julie, teetering between denial and rage, who disappeared for three weeks and was discovered in her grandmother’s apartment storage locker with her dog, Growl, and the decomposing body of her grandmother. Emotionally powerful, Pacamambo promises to be a magical experience for audiences of all ages.
