Black Theatre Workshop / Imago Theatre (Montréal)


18 mars — 4 avr.




In 2008, the London media reported rumors of a series of murders in the black community that targeted young people, who merely walked into innocent conflicts or settled other peoples’ debts. A hard-hitting piece devoted to explaining and giving a face to these absurd tragedies, random discusses the arbitrary, blind violence that could strike anywhere, impact any family, and make normalcy a thing of the past.

Micheline Chevrier directs debbie tucker green ’s strong and poetic random, interpreted by the exceptional Lucinda Davis. Her performance brings each family member to life, showing how their lives were transformed after the police burst into their home. While this captivating and shocking drama will curdle the blood of any parents in the audience, it also has some lighter moments. The strongly emotional text reveals and upsets our own prejudices, playing with stereotypes and social conditioning.
