So much incredible theatre going on and coming in this city, folks.
Like, for instance, No Exit Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Governor General Award-winning play The List, by Jennifer Tremblay – running from October 17 – 30 at The Artisan Factory (104G – 344 Westmoreland).
Directed and designed by Steph Ouaknine, and starring Torri Higginson, The List “is a tale of everyday to-do lists in which the essential and ordinary are inextricably entwined.”
Here’s the synopsis: “A woman (Higginson) invites us into her kitchen. Her neighbour is dead. Is she culpable for the death? The woman, who prides herself on never letting anything slip by, has overlooked an item on her list.”
This production design is fully projection-based, with the actress lit by a single projector from the front. Director/designer Steph Ouaknine describes the projections as illustrating the character’s emotions “through the use of various textures, videos, sizes and colour.”

This seemingly simple premise appears to have the potential to be chillingly compelling – with everyday life taking on some unexpectedly high stakes. Definitely worth checking out.
