URBANITE READING SERIES

POISON

By Lot Vekemans

Directed by Natalie Novacek

February 25-27 2018 @ 8PM

The Urbanite Reading Series features staged readings of newer works we're considering giving full productions. All readings will include talkbacks following the reading, where your feedback is crucial.

Alone in a room for the first time in years, a couple is brought back together again after a harrowing breakup. As the play progresses, old wounds re-open, new truths surface, and the real reason behind their separation is learned. Delicate yet hard-hitting, POISON holds up a (hopeful) mirror to humanity where love and humour can still be found in the midst of so much pain.

Approximately 85 minutes, no intermission.
