The Real McCoy Toronto

This Week in Theatre October 17-24

This week's theatre picks include a revival of a classic, a revival of a soon to be classic, and a first time for a possible future classic. Boy, that just jumps right off the tongue, don't it? Go see these ones, they are definitely well worth it.

Dying To be sick - Molière's piece gets a pretty strong outing here under the healm of director Brendan Healy, adapted by John Van Burek and former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. Pleiades Theatre brings us the adaptation about a man who thrives on his ill health and the control over his family he thinks it gives him. Very very funny!!! Runs to Nov 4 at the Theatre Centre.

The Real McCoy - Andrew Moodie's play about Elijah McCoy, who was uncredited with his many inventions (hence the term the Real McCoy), was such a great success in its first run a couple years ago that Factory Theatre is bringing it back for another run. It's a great way to begin mythologizing Canadian character with a great Canadian play about a great Canadian man. Runs to Nov 4.

East of Berlin - by Hannah Moscovitch Tarragon Theatre. A fathers' war crime past comes back to haunt him and his son.. Come see the hottest playwright in Toronto today. Runs to Nov 25.
