Written by one of Canada’s most highly regarded playwrights, Lion In The Streets is rife with characters who speak the unspoken in scenes that suddenly shift rapid-fire, so that, like in a dream, the audience is on edge wondering where they are moment to moment. Lion… is a dark play that forces us to live in a state of wonder, confronted by an unsettling world.
