the great war

June 7, 2010

I watched an outstanding play last weekend called “The Great War” – playing at the Cameron House on Queen Street West. It was witty, playful, funny, but still relevant about the atrocities and darkness of war.

This play was revealing in its meagerness of materials – no Mirvish production here. It goes to show that all you need is great acting, great lighting, and great costumes and props. I couldn’t believe how effective they were with a tiny stage and well-timed lighting and dialogue. Highly recommended.
