THE WEDDING PARTY
National Arts Centre
1, rue Elgin, Ottawa, (Québec), K1P 5W1
By Kristen Thomson Director Chris Abraham Based on the characters created with Trish Lindström, Tony Nappo, Moya O’Connell, Tom Rooney and Bahia Watson NAC English Theatre Presentation Crow’s Theatre (Toronto, ON) and Talk Is Free Theatre (Barrie, ON) What do estranged twins, Moldovan circus performers, a Bernese Mountain Dog and several bottles of expensive champagne have in common? In The Wedding Party, the answer is nothing . . . and everything! Save the date for this wild romp through that most stressful and bizarre of rituals – the joyous, hellish and often alcohol-fuelled post-wedding reception. This comedic tour-de-force features regulars from the Stratford and Shaw festivals. Careening between a shambolic war of compliments, fraying nerves and a mind-blowing, character-swapping cast of dozens, The Wedding Party will have you entirely complicit in the chaos!
