A riotous play about police shootings
This month, Toronto gets a double shot of prolific playwright Kat Sandler. Her quirky, Dora-winning comedy Mustard gets a remount at the Tarragon (Jan. 3 to 28), while her newest satire, Bang Bang, brings some hefty, hilarious questions about cultural appropriation to the Factory Theatre stage. The production follows a white male playwright who sets out to dramatize the police shooting of a young black man. When his hit play is turned into a Hollywood film, its star pays a visit to the reallife cop involved in the incident and confronts some ugly truths.
