Alone in a room for the first time in years, a couple is brought back together again after a harrowing breakup. As old wounds are re-opened, new truths surface and the real reason behind their separation is learned. Tender yet hard-hitting, POISON holds up a (hopeful) mirror to humanity where love and humour can still be found in the midst of so much brokenness.
The Canadian Premiere of Euro-hit POISON by award-winning Dutch playwright Lot Vekemans with translation by British writer Rina Vergano, marks the first commissioned translation by Coal Mine Theatre. Running November 12 – December 3, 2017, POISON is directed by Peter Pasyk and stars Ted Dykstra and Fiona Highet.
