1. Escape From Happiness @ Langham Court Theatre (April 20 – May 7)
This very funny dark comedy, set in working-class Toronto tells the story of Nora, the matriarch of an eccentric, wacky family. Her daughter Mary Ann is a crazy runaway mother, her son-in-law Junior is a beat-up car thief, and her daughter Elizabeth is a hot-tempered bisexual. Nora maintains a cock-eyed optimism with a cup of tea and a firm grasp on fantasy, as the family deals with cops, drug dealers, and thugs in the basement.
Watch the trailer here.
