Judith Thompson’s gritty first play The Crackwalker is being revived by a local collective for a Sept. 26-29 run.
The 1980 play, which introduced the Governor General-award winning Thompson as an important Canadian theatre voice, offers a glimpse into the lives of the destitute living on the margins of society in Kingston, Ont. The down-and-outers include the mentally-challenged Theresa, who turns tricks for $5 and is addicted to Tim Hortons’ doughnuts.
Actress/playwright Debbie Patterson directs the Sweet and Salty Collective production being staged in the basement of the Royal Canadian Legion at 626 Sargent Ave. Tickets are $15, $10 for students/unemployed and are available at email@example.com
