Segal Centre Multi-Award-Winning MASTER HAROLD...AND THE BOYS Comes To Montreal Segal Centre Multi-Award-Winning MASTER HAROLD...AND THE BOYS Comes To Montreal
by BWW News Desk on December 11, 2017 in Montreal

The Segal Centre, in association with Black Theatre Workshop, is proud to present the acclaimed production of Master Harold and the Boys by the Shaw Festival in association with Obsidian Theatre. One of Athol Fugard's most powerful plays, this Dora Award-winning production will be on the Segal stage from January 21 to February 11, 2018. Fueled by the South African playwright's recollections of his youth, this incendiary play lights a fuse that ultimately explodes the subtle corruption of living in an environment where systemic racism is condoned or even encouraged; addressing racial injustice that lingers far beyond its apartheid era setting.

BULLSHIT THRESHOLD on Display at La Chapelle This February BULLSHIT THRESHOLD on Display at La Chapelle This February
by BWW News Desk on December 08, 2017 in Montreal

The Montreal artist, who compiled an excellent Five of the Best feature for us recently, has a sound spoken-word poetry performed over deliciously humming, percussive cold-wave music, essentially that would seem to lend itself most naturally to small rooms. It certainly does do that, but her show on Friday night also proved she is more than capable of commanding a large open-air stage. That's hardly surprising given her immensely likeable, charismatic stage presence. (more...)

Acts to Grind Theatre to present the Quebec Premiere of Brad Fraser's TRUE LOVE LIES 2/8-2/18 Acts to Grind Theatre to present the Quebec Premiere of Brad Fraser's TRUE LOVE LIES 2/8-2/18
by BWW News Desk on December 07, 2017 in Montreal

True Love Lies is a gut wrenchingly moving dark comedy that promises to be a great opportunity to experience Brad Fraser's, Canada's Bad-Boy of Theatre, brilliant writing once again. The rapid fire dialogue and action moves along at an incredibly fast pace, the language is very dense, almost like Shakespeare, and it's filled to the brim with fantastic humorous Brad Fraser wit. The character David McMillan returns for a fourth appearance in one of Fraser's plays; is he Fraser's alter-ego perhaps? In this provocative, challenging, sexualized sitcom-cum-family-explosive sexcapade, McMillan, now a successful restaurateur, returns to Yorkville after a twenty-year absence. (more...)
