Tomasso’s Party – Toronto Next Stage 2012 Press Release

From Press Release

As part of The Next Stage Theatre Festival, Rooftop Productions presents Tomasso’s Party

Tomasso’s Party, by young novelist Jules Lewis (Waiting for Ricky Tantrum, Dundurn Press), holds a microscope up to conventional ideas of intimacy through the nuanced exploration of a simple circumstance involving a young couple: Madeleine wants to go to Tomasso’s party; Hugo does not.

As the two argue deep insecurities they have about themselves and each other are revealed. The power between them shifts; both are surprised and damaged.  This world premiere production is a raw portrayal of sexual politics, intellectual jealousy, relationship power dynamics and lays bare the vulnerability of human emotions. Produced by André du Toit (Factory Theatre, Lab Cab Festival, Canadian Rep Theatre).
