The world premiere of George F. Walker’s latest show closes this weekend at Hart House Theatre. We The Family brings together multicultural mayhem, love, larceny and death!
Two families collide in this dark comedy written by acclaimed Canadian playwright, George F. Walker. Known for his wit and biting commentary on city living, Walker’s “We the Family” looks at the after-effects of a wedding between culturally divergent families. As they struggle to understand one another, their own failings and bad choices set them on a collision course with a devastating – and hilarious – end.
The amazing Andrea Wasserman has directed this bold and in your face show just as Walker likes it; without apology. Working with this incredible cast has been such a fun adventure and I can’t wait to hit the stage with them for our final week!
