Civil Elegies

We ended the 2009 season with a Soulpepper production of this one man show. The poems of Dennis Lee are performed to a video backdrop of images. It is surprisingly effective.
Mike Ross who created the play, also performed and played the piano.
Hard to reconcile the author of Alligator Pie with the bleak outlook expressed inthis set of poems.
We enjoyed the performance, but were not unhappy to hear those lovely words as we entered the theatre “ninety minutes, no intermission”.

    Ah, it was okay and quite interesting – but no biggy.
