Among my various disparate extra-curricular activities, I am very fortunate to be on the Board of Directors for The Actors Repertory Company, a pretty kickass theatre group here in Toronto. Our latest show, Martin Crimp's The City, is premiering this week, and you should probably go see it. Why? Because it's awesome. And that's not just "I-have-to-say-that-because-I'm-on-the-board" talk. This is a genuinely awesome play. Martin Crimp is one of the UK's best contemporary playwrights, and the show features a slate of amazing actors and a crackerjack creative team. The City is a dark comedic mystery, and as the Guardian notes, “the brilliance lies in how it allows the audience to create its own story. We emerge deeply disturbed, but aware of a writer in full control of his talent.”
