Centaur offers a varied assortment of works
by Estelle Rosen and Gaëtan L. Charlebois
Among the well-known Montrealers appearing in Centaur Theatre's 2012-13 season are actor Johanna Nutter (who continues to tour with her solo hit My Pregnant Brother) and Andrew Shaver (whose Haunted Hillbilly is one of the highly-anticipated productions later in this season at the Old Stock Exchange).
Nutter is appearing in David Lindsay Abaire's Good People - described by the Company's Artistic Director, Roy Surette, as "desperation meets affluence". Shaver, meanwhile, is directing Mark Doherty's Trad (which was presented four years ago).
- a "knockabout comedy" The Number 14, a co-production with Axis Theatre
- from Amsterdam, Dance me to the end on/off Love, inspired by music and lyrics by Leonard Cohen
- Innocence Lost: A play about Steven Truscott by Beverley Cooper. The Steven Truscott case (in 1959) - an adolescent accused of murdering a young woman - became a cause célebre for decades in this country
- August, An Afternoon in the Country, by three-time GG-winner Jean-Marc Dalpé.
Also in the season are the Brave New Looks program, Urban Tales and the Sweet 16th Wildside Festival - staples of Centaur's annual programming. Two visiting companies, Imago and Geordie, will be coming to the house as well.
