Drama at the Carleton Tavern
By Ted Simpson
Chamber Theatre Hintonburg are currently performing David Mamet’s Edmond: a twisted story of a man’s fall from married life into the dark criminal underworld, through prostitution, violence and murder.
The Carleton Tavern provides a unique and intriguing venue for the production. The minimal set design and intimate room put the focus directly on the powerful, intense performances from a truly outstanding cast.
Kitchissippi’s Donnie Laflamme as Edmond is a captivating and at times terrifying lead. Laflamme also directed and produced the performance with assistance from Manon Dumas.
Be advised the show contains some extremely harsh language and graphic imagery.
Edmond runs April 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. and April 13 at 5:00 p.m.
Tickets are $20 each, available online at eventbrite or by personal reservation 613-791-4471, 613-791-0097.
