Actors Repertory Company is thrilled to announce the Canadian première of Martin Crimp’s celebrated work The City, a deliciously wicked yet profound piece of theatre. Joining the two time Dora Award winning company is Award winning Romanian Director Cristian Popescu, who will lead the audience through Crimp’s fierce and penetrating vision of modern life. Opening March 19, 2010 at The Berkeley Street Theatre Upstairs, the show runs until April 3, 2010.
“And I know what you’re thinking: you’re thinking it must be pretty easy to kill people who are simply clinging on to life. But the people clinging on to life are the most dangerous people of all.”
Clair wants to be kissed - but not now - and certainly not by her husband. Chris wants to celebrate
his new job by driving into the oncoming traffic. Jenny arrives to complain about the screaming children - but the garden's empty, and the key to the playroom's disappeared. Just what strange game is being played here? Three characters fight to make sense of a surreal and collapsing world in this darkly comic mystery.
