As those of you who’ve been hanging around a while know, I sit as a member of the board for One Little Goat Theatre Company in Toronto, Canada’s only professional company dedicated to exploring the boundaries between poetry and theatre. Our performances of the last few years have not only brought some incredible foreign theatre to Toronto, but have been almost universally well-received. From Austrian Thomas Bernhard’s “Ritter, Dene, Voss” to Norwegian Jon Fosse’s “Someone is Going to Come” with Israel’s Yehuda Amichai and a radical poetic rewrite of “Antigone” in between, One Little Goat has proven itself time and time again to be driving outwards from the borders of contemporary theatre in Canada.
This weekend we’re launching the first original play we’ve done in a while, “Talking Masks”, by our own artistic director, poet, Beckett scholar, and playwright Adam Seelig. There are even some free copies of the printed play floating around for early viewers. Check it all out here, and get your tickets before they’re gone.
