Sneak Preview Review: CRASH

by Lynn on May 2, 2012

in The Passionate Playgoer

At Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace until May 13. Written and performed by Pamela Sinha. Directed by Alan Dilworth. Lighting and set designed by Kimberly Purtell. Sound by Debashis Sinha. Choreography by Monika Dottor. Mahadevi choreography by Rubena Sinha.

Produced by Theatre Passe Muraille.

CRASH is a compelling, gripping piece of theatre. It’s the story of a woman remembering a horrific moment in her life and how she survived it. At times the woman suppresses the memory; at others she tries to remember details that have eluded her. When you realize whose story it actually is, it’s a stunning revelation.

Pamela Sinha is a graceful, poetic writer. Details are spare but the images are crystal clear and memorable. As an actor she is understated and thus compelling. The production is beautifully directed by Alan Dilworth with an evocative set and lighting design by Kimberly Purtell.

Theatre at its finest.

Full review will be broadcast on CIUT FRIDAY MORNING on Friday, May 4 on CIUT 89.5 FM from 9 am to 10 am.
