by Adam Seybold (Theatre Passe Muraille). An exiled Jesuit priest crosses continents in search of knowledge and truth. Previews Nov 20-23. Opens Nov 25 and runs to Dec 14, Wed-Sat 7:30 pm, mat Sat-Sun 2 pm. $17-$38, mat pwyc at the door.
Seybolds play about the life of Jesuit priest, paleontologist and geologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (Cyrus Lane) is beautifully detailed and suggestive. Director Alan Dilworth and a talented design team bring the two-hander to vivid life, and there are focused, moving performances by Cyrus Lane, as De Chardin, and Maev Beaty, who skilfully plays a variety of characters in the mans peripatetic life.
