Baby With the Bathwater

Baby With the Bathwater by Christopher Durang
Theatre Inconnu       Sept 30 – 18, 2014

???????????????????????????????Baby With the Bathwater defies categorization. It begins as a comedic roller-coaster ride through a madhouse of parenting nightmares, and just when we have forgotten that there might actually be a little person at the root of Helen and John’s struggles, Durang thrusts us into the wake of their misguided voyage; and we find ourselves watching the world from the identity-challenged perspective of their progeny: the child whose name never quite sticks. Durang manages to simultaneously enthrall and appall with joyful abandon. Cringes and belly-laughter topple one on top of the other, with the unlikely consequence of revealing a deep sense of reverence for the family ties that bind. This is an irresistible outing with an absurd genius of a writer.

“Christopher Durang is one of the funniest dramatists alive, and one of the most sharply satiric. This time, parenthood is the target.” The New Yorker

Starring: Lorene Cammiade, Jack Hayes, Mathew McLaren, Tea Siskin, Rebecca Wait

Alice

Alice a musical by Tom Waits       Theatre Inconnu       Dec 3 – 20, 2014

ALICEAlice a musical by Tom Waits, Katherine Brennan, and Paul Phillips – Dec 3 –20, 2014.

Theatre Inconnu’s production marks the Canadian premiere of this richly textured retelling of Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories. Both the music and script – as created by three towering artists – are exquisitely crafted. The jumping off point for this particular version of the story is the relationship between Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) and his supposed inspiration for the story, Alice Liddell. A number of the more familiar episodes from the Alice stories are reworked and many of Lewis’ more outrageous characters are presented. Tom Waits is one of the most influential composer/performers of the 20th century, and continue to carve out new territory in the 21st. Local popular alternative band, The Party on High Street – who so dynamically contributed to Love Kills, the Musical (2010) – will provide musical accompaniment.

Preview  8pm:  Dec 3
