Montreal’s best known company for supporting up and coming works from Quebec and Indigenous artists, Infinitheatre, has something exciting to talk about in February. Montreal playwright, Alyson Grant’s newest work, Conversion, directed by Guy Sprung, puts the focus on family dynamics. Four family members get together for a celebratory supper only to have the party disrupted by clashes over race, class, gender, and religion. The talented team of Diana Fajrajsl, Timothy Hine, Mike Payette and Denise Watt will show us if blood is thicker than disagreement.
We have one pair of tickets to give away. To enter, by February 2, 2018 at noon, in the comments section below or by email HERE, tell us about the issue that divides your family. Winners will receive info about their tickets to the show on February 2 by email.
Even if you don’t win, this play will remind you that all families are crazy. Some are just a little more crazy than others.
Conversion runs at Espace Knox (6215 Avenue Godfrey) on Tuesdays-Sundays, from February 6-25th at 8 p.m., with Sunday PWYC matinees at 2 p.m. General admission is $30, students/seniors $23, QDF members $25, with special group pricing also available. Post-show talkbacks take place Thursdays. French subtitles are available Tuesdays and Fridays. Tickets HERE.
