How about a night out and a great, live show? Great Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC) is presenting the world premiere of Like Wolves by Ottawa playwright Rosa Laborde. Onstage through June 23 at the Irving Greenberg Theatre, Like Wolves is a black comedy about life choices and family.
It tells the story of Sam and Vera, who are celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary. Sam has surprised Vera by bringing her back to the spot of their honeymoon. Vera is shocked to discover the once charming bed and breakfast has transformed into the last place on earth she wants to be. When Sam has an unexpected heart attack, Vera finds herself stuck and re-evaluating her life. The ensemble cast stars Nancy Beatty as Vera, Peter Froehlich as Sam, Matthew Edison as Tom, Kimwun Perehinec as Mia, Alix Sideris as Nina and John Koensgen as Yuri. Artistic Director Eric Coates calls Laborde “a playwright of great depth and humour” and adds, “We are very proud of GCTC’s role in the birth of her latest work.” For details and tickets, see www.gctc.ca.
