This Week in Theatre: June 6-13


The The Luminato Festival is in full swing this week and here are some of the theatre projects involved that sound interesting and different.

Spiegeltent'ntavern - Cabaret meets circus in this production. Naughty showgirls, bawdy boys, skits, musical acts, acrobats and all in a huge tent of mirrors. Oh yeah and there's a lot of beer too. Sounds like a night out for all in a serious visual feast!!! Brought to you by Harbourfront Centre and running until June 10.

Risk Everything - Poland theatre company TR Warszawa shows us what their world of George F. Walker looks like in this unique opportunity to see a Canadian play on Canadian soil done by a foreign theatre company. Grzegorz Jarzyna, Polish master director, attempts to capture the underworld of addicts, prostitutes and petty criminals using a mix of dry humour, film and TV clips, and real life on the streets. Runs to June 10th at the Harbourfront Centre.

Escape from happiness - George F Walker's name is all over the place in this festival including three of his pieces running in rep at the Factory. This one, the third and final installment ,deals with the continuing troubles of Nora and her family. Runs to Jun 17 at Factory Theatre.
