Betrayal, friendship and a birthday cake
Too much liquor and party games can be a lot of fun, unless you have a bitter Queen in attendance.
More compelling than ever, this trailblazing play has sparked controversy for almost five decades with the first production coinciding with the burgeoning gay rights battle. While the show is considered a genuine period piece that ages surprisingly little, it still has the power to sting.
Seven friends come together to celebrate Harold’s birthday, but when the booze starts flowing, the host gets malicious – drawing out the guests’ deepest secrets. Ghost Light Projects takes a rapid-fire approach to the show, with characters that are remarkably quick-witted, raucous and catty, but also surprisingly touching.
Dora Mavor Moore nominee Matthew Romantini reprises the part of Michael, a role he professes has him ‘hungry’ to revisit and tackle for the magic of the character’s nuance that runs a gamut of emotions. Joining Romantini is the stellar cast of Marco Arimare as Emory, Daniel Bates as Donald, Chris Cope as Alan, Roy Dilbert as Bernard, Matt Hume as Larry and Rob Monk as Harold.
Artistic Producer Randie Parliament teams up with Greg Bishop as co-directors.
Check out the show that broke down barriers nearly half a century ago!
