Cast promises energetic frenzy at the Young School of Performing Arts
George Brown school of performing arts students’ continue their season at the Young Centre for the Performance Arts with a production of The Suicide.
The Suicide was written as a farce by Nikolai Erdman in 1928. The play is a comedy set in the 1920s that tells the story of a desperate man contemplating suicide as he is besieged by discontented characters begging him to kill himself as a gesture for their cause.
“Women during this time in Soviet Russia had very few rights allowed them, and the fact that she is the sole provider for her family, and is always trying to be hopeful thinking about the future,” said Romanek. She added that Maria is “constantly filled with hope for a better life.”
From Feb. 10-20 students can go see The Suicide at the Young School of Performing Arts in the Distillery District. Tickets are $8 for students, $20 for adults, and $15 for GBC staff and alumni.
