Join four local actors as they show us two very different characters in this double-bill of one-act plays. First meet Hannah, a bag lady living in the Toronto subways, who has a shocking and terrible collection of secrets. Then befriend Stanley, a friendly, slightly-alcoholic bloke whose life hasn’t always turned out the way he hoped but he sure has some stories to tell!
Endings is an evening of two one-act shows loosely linked by the theme of “life stories”. The first, Mind the Gap, is a humanizing look at a Torontonian ‘bag lady’. As she sleeps in the subway, we see her past via a scene from a mental hospital. Jodi Morden plays the energetic, determined, younger version of our protagonist and brings a spirited sense of fun to the stage. Hannah is almost instantly likeable thanks to Morden’s charming acting, which makes Beverley Wolfe’s portrayal of the current day Hannah all the more tragic. Read the full review.
