Western Edge Theatre concludes its 2017-18 Season with a bang, in more ways than one! “Dead Metaphor is dead serious, but still seriously funny.” (San Francisco Examiner)
From one of Canada’s most celebrated playwrights comes this sharpshooting dark comedy about a soldier just back from Afghanistan. Trained as a sniper, Dean finds there isn’t a lot of call for his specialty back home. Meantime, he’s living with his aging parents and just re-married his pregnant ex-wife. Things start to look up, though, when he meets Helen, a rabid politician who, in her rise to the top, may have a use for his skills after all.
With its mix of desperate characters and crazed politics, Dead Metaphor is a play for our times.
Featuring Jonathan Hamilton, Barbara Metcalf, Frank Moher, Joanne Rowland, Erik Tully, and Belle Warner
