This Week in Theatre: My 30-June 6th

Sorry about the delay this week - viruses, crashing computers, computers out the window, etc. Just your usual online week.

Anyway. On that note. Here are my picks of theatrical productions getting a lot of talk this week.

Escape From Happiness - George F Walker's third piece of his East End Plays was a masterpiece of direction and performance when it was first reprised in last year's season and has come back in rep with Better Living. The East End Toronto family gets even more insane in this wild family comedy. Runs to June 17th at Factory Theatre.

Leaving Home - The Canadian classic that gave Canadian playwrights their first real voice. The story of a young man who battles his father in a way no one else in the family had dared. Runs in rep to June 16th.Soulpepper

Collected Stories - Role revearsal in this tale of a writing teacher and her prize student who begins to achieve a higher success than her elder. A tricky two-hander.Tarragon Theatre
