Sneak Preview Review: HIGH LIFE

by Lynn on February 22, 2012

in The Passionate Playgoer

At the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. Written by Lee MacDougall. Directed by Stuart Hughes.

Presented by Soulpepper.

HIGH LIFE is a high octane play about four low-lifes who are full of their own hilarious charm. The story of how they plan a bank robbery, and seem to live for the excitement of ‘the thing’ gives the play its richness. MacDougall writes dialogue that zings through the air; situations that grip you from the start; and characters who are both endearing and scary. Stuart Hughes direction is as tight as a newly washed pair of jeans and just as gripping.

It’s a terrific play and production.

Full review on Friday, on CIUT FRIDAY MORNING on 89.5 fm Friday from 9 am to 10 am.
