CANADIAN REP THEATRE FALL 2016 SEASON
Canadian Rep Theatre presents the world premiere of George F. Walker’s THE DAMAGE DONE, directed by Ken Gass. Starring Sarah Murphy-Dyson and Wes Berger, THE DAMAGE DONE explores the lives of Bobby and Tina from Walker’s early classic TOUGH! eighteen years later, when both are facing early mid-life crises and there are two teenage daughters in the background. Painful, funny and searingly honest, THE DAMAGE DONE explores the ruins of a messy love affair amid the faint glimmer of hope.
THE DAMAGE DONE will receive its “out of town tryout” premiere at the Pearl Theatre in Hamilton from September 23 to October 9th. The production will subsequently open in Toronto for a 4-week run, dates and venue to be confirmed shortly.
