This year's Enbridge playRites Festival of New Canadian Plays includes world premiere productions of:
The Valley by Joan MacLeod
When an episode on the Sky-train between a troubled teen and a police officer turns violent, it reverberates throughout the community, sweeping both families up into a storm of emotion, opinion and conflict. This humane, thought-provoking, and relevant new play is by Siminovitch Prize winning writer Joan MacLeod.
Dust by Jonathan Garfinkel and Christopher Morris, in association with Human Cargo
Mothers, friends, lovers and wives –who will stand and tell the tale, in the wake of war? This deeply compassionate reckoning with the conflict in Afghanistan is told from the point of view of families of soldiers on both sides. Based on true stories, this play about courage, grief, and witness is the fruit of an international collaboration.
The Apology by Darrah Teitel
It is 1814. Young Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein), Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and Claire Clairemont retreat to a castle to write poetry, make love, do drugs, and try to invent a new way of being alive. In this funny, hot-blooded, live-wire portrayal by newcomer Darrah Teitel, Romantic tradition is ripped wide open to unleash a group of anarchic, love-crazed, foul-mouthed teens – who also happen to be geniuses.
The God That Comes by Christian Barry and Hawksley Workman
In a world governed by greed, rules and order, the people take to the hills in a hedonistic revolt fuelled by wine, ritual madness and ecstasy, in this contemporary take on the Greek tragedy, The Bacchae. This live performance stars Hawksley Workman and fuses the chaotic revelry of a rock concert with the captivating intimacy of theatre. Have a drink, hear a story, and get lost in the music.
