THE ASSEMBLY THEATRE PROUDLY PRESENTS:
"HER INSIDE LIFE" & "KILL THE POOR"
Following last year's sold out run of the critically acclaimed play "The Chance"
George F. Walker closes out his Parkdale Palace Trilogy with our first ever double bill
Produced By: Leroy Street Theatre & Low Rise Production
October 27th - November 18, 2018
Wes Berger, long time Walker collaborator, directs Kill the Poor. A traffic accident, a death, a police investigation, a gift from a suspicious stranger, and a drug dealer down the hall. A young working class couple (Anne van Leeuwen and Craig Henderson) , struggling to keep their heads above water, are now in a situation which threatens to throw them into a dangerous free fall. Good thing their apartment building’s custodian (Gemini nominee - Ron Lea) is a disbarred lawyer willing to do some very extreme things to help them out. If only they could remember to lock the door. Also featuring Al Bernstein and Chandra Galasso.
Directed by Andrea Wasserman, Her Inside Life introduces us to Violet (Gemini award winner - Catherine Fitch) who is medicated and on house arrest learning to negotiate with her social worker Cathy (Sarah Murphy-Dyson) and her daughter (Lesley Robertson). When a man she thought she had killed (Tony Munch) is released from prison she sees a chance to show everyone that she is in fact, as she has long insisted: not crazy. An oddly heartwarming story about coming to terms with the truth: of your past and your present.
"So many people want to put on their stuff but don't have the resources. This is it!"
"Community outreach starts with adjusting the practice of just doing pure presentation, then you can begin to build an artistic relationship"
"What's so inspiring is the independent on-the-ground theatre that is happening in this city"
"I go see as many things as I can because I love it so much. I want to be involved, I want to be a part"
