This Week in Theatre: April 8 2008

Okay, so, maybe the warm weather is making you think that you'd rather sit on a patio having pint with friends than being anywhere inside - a noble pursuit to be sure. Something that will enhance that activity by providing excellent fodder for conversation on the patio is going to a play. Here's a list of stuff that's going on in Toronto this week...

If a play doesn't have a description it has been described in a previous entry.

Struggling to return to normalcy after being caught up in a tragic event, the parents of a working-class family in Montreal do everything they can to help their beloved son cope with guilt and rage... but will it be enough?
