By Darrah Teitel | In Partnership with Spiderwebshow Performance
Mara’s life is normal. She lives in Ottawa, has a good government job, a handsome partner, a new baby boy, and everything appears fine on the surface. Appearances can be deceiving. A world premiere about sexual assault, political expediency, and the masks we wear to carry on as if everything is as it should be.
Tuesday - Friday: 8pm
Saturday: 4pm and 8:30pm
The first Sunday of each GCTC production is a Pay-What-You-Desire performance. Available tickets can be purchased in person at the box office as of noon for the 2PM performance for whatever price suits your budget.
Why I chose this play
“The unpredictability of this script provides enormous tension. I have always liked Darrah’s writing, but I feel that she has turned a corner with this one by piling up the contrasts of motherhood, career and marriage against a backdrop of invisible violence.”
— Eric Coates, Artistic Director
Darrah Teitel: Playwright
Stages & Pages
The Ottawa Public Library and GCTC have come together in a special partnership to help you explore the themes and topics raised in each play during GCTC’s 2018-2019 season.
OPL’s Readers’ Advisory staff have read the scripts for each of the plays, and recommended resources to further the exploration of their themes. The resources will only add to the experience of seeing the show, and can be explored before or after being part of the audience.
