WINNER of the 2016 DORA MARVOR MOORE AWARD for BEST DIRECTION. BUTCHER returns in a large scale production at the Panasonic theatre.
Who is the Butcher? A mysterious old man is dropped off at a police station, wearing a foreign military uniform, and a Santa hat, with a meat hook dangling around his neck. As a lawyer, a police officer, and a translator struggle to unravel the truth, they uncover a past that won’t stay buried, and a decades old quest for justice that must be served. Haunted by events a world away, no one is who they seem to be.
For lack of a better word, IT IS THRILLING. – TORONTO STAR
An Excruciatingly Excellent Production. – NATIONAL POST
