Three Plays

Book - 2015
Rate this:
Canada's top playwright sears the page with three new darkly comic plays that denounce political culture, individualism, and the accompanying moral depravity. The title play, Dead Metaphor , examines the collision of a politician's personal and professional lives, complicated by a son's return from Afghanistan. In The Ravine , a mayoral candidate learns that his ex-wife is living in a gully nearby and wants to put a hit on him. The Burdenof Self-Awareness has money at the centre of a dramatic conflict of values. Each of the three plays is populated by characters trying to navigate the increasingly blurred lines of what's right and wrong - trying to always stay informed, alert, and ready to act for the common good. Or just to get even.
