Details: The Toronto premiere of Catherine Banks’ tragi-comedy Bone Cage is directed by Hart House Theatre alumnus Matt White, features a cast of the city’s finest emerging talent including the formidable Layne Coleman in a production that is both compelling and unique. The playwright, Catherine Banks, will be present for the opening week and will be making public appearances to discuss her work.
Winner of the 2008 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, Bone Cage explores the desolation and desperate struggle of a group of young adults striving to rise above the pillaged landscape of rural Nova Scotia. Through dark poetry and wry humour, Banks creates a world where all people are trapped in cages of their own construction as inescapable as their own bodies.
Taking on the challenge of creating Catherine Banks’ pillaged Nova-Scotian landscape is a design team that brings years of professional training and experience to the project. Set designer Elizabeth Kantor, costume designer Ming Wong, lighting designer David DeGrow and soundscape creator Alexander Punzalan Junior.
