12 a zany small-town com­edy

Toronto Life - - Culture -

The Shaw Fes­ti­val had a sleeper hit last year with its ex­quis­ite stag­ing of Amer­i­can play­wright Will Eno’s quirky, drama-fu­elled com­edy. A wry spin on Thorn­ton Wilder’s Our Town, the play is set in a back­wa­ter burg where the mun­dane and the mo­men­tous go hand in hand. As the typ­i­cal in­ter­act in un­ex­pected ways, a friend­ship de­vel­ops be­tween a preg­nant housewife and the plumber hired to fix her sink. Crow’s Theatre part­nered with Shaw for the Toronto show, which fea­tures the orig­i­nal cast from the Cana­dian pre­miere.
