The Amorous Adventures of Anatol


Tarragon Theatre presents the Toronto premiere of The Amorous Adventures of Anatol, a contemporary re-visioning of Austrian playwright/novelist Arthur Schnitzler’s Anatol (1893), adapted and directed by celebrated Canadian director Morris Panych.

It is fin de siècle Vienna. The young, incurably romantic — and indecisively neurotic — Anatol pursues each woman as if she is “the one,” without commitment or care. With Anatol’s eye ever-wandering, his psychologist friend Max tries to counsel his incorrigible friend. Though Anatol demands absolute loyalty in his lovers, it is not the same yardstick he holds up for himself. As the narcissistic Anatol woos a succession of seven different women, we learn what Anatol knows – and does not know – about women, while revealing all about himself.

Mike Shara reprises the role of Anatol, whom he portrayed to critical acclaim at the 2008 premiere of this sharp and fast-paced black comedy at the Vancouver Playhouse:

“Morris Panych overlays Schnitzler's fin de siècle sexual psychology with his own contemporary brand of absurdist comedy. Handsome, feckless, raffish Anatol, his psychologist friend Max, and the seven women he can't live with or without take us on a witty... chase around the egotism, ambivalence and hypocrisies of love….Mike Shara plays Anatol with a winning combination of charm, conceit and confusion.”
