by Sean Dixon (Theatrefront). Two city workers deal with boredom and existential dread while waiting to remove a blighted tree in this blend of absurdity and realism that delves into the dynamics of power, the nature of partnerships and the modern human condition. Previews Mar 16, opens Mar 17 and runs to Apr 1, Mon-Sat 8 pm, mat Sat 2 pm. $20-$35.
What begins as an everyday story about two city workers cutting down a tree on Roncesvalles Avenue turns into a tale of feminist mythology and power. Working with director Vikki Anderson, Daniela Vlaskalic and Shawn Doyle offer fine work as friends whose relationship takes a surprising turn.
