University Players Present Lion In The Streets Mar. 3-12, 2017

Lion In The Streets

The University Players are presenting a series of performances of Judith Thompson’s Lion In The Streets at the Hatch Studio Theatre from March 3-12, 2017.

The show tells the story of the ghost of Isobel, a nine-year-old Portuguese girl, who wanders the neighbourhoods of Toronto in search of her murderer. As she watches over the living, she shares their darkest moments, and ultimately finds hope and forgiveness. In this powerful and surreal masterpiece by one of Canada’s pre-eminent and celebrated playwrights, Thompson examines isolation, cruelty and the possibility of a moment of grace and redemption.

Like many of Judith Thompson’s plays, Lion in the Streets is a nightmare, full of heightened surrealistic imagery which derives from the obsessions of her characters

For mature audiences – Some may find the language and subject matter disturbing.

Tickets are on sale, priced from $19-22 ($8 for UWindsor students), available online at www.UniversityPlayers.com or by phone 519-253-3000 ext. 2808. The Hatch Studio Theatre is located in the Jackman Dramatic Art Centre on the University of Windsor campus.
