Tough Call (Fri. 1 Jun, 2018 8:00 pm)

Tough Call

 

An original two-act play by Viewer Discretion Productions, premiering at the Highland Arts Theatre in Sydney, Nova Scotia on Friday, June 1st and Saturday, June 2nd!

 

1986 – New Year's Eve.

 

Dean is working the graveyard shift at a local TV station, wasting time in the back office as the world outside cheers the coming of the new year. His solitary night of self-pity and Chinese food takeout is interrupted by a ringing telephone – a wrong number. On a normal night, that would be the end of it. But amid the beginnings of an awkward, halting conversation, the young caller inadvertently lets slip a secret.

 

He's planning to commit suicide. 

 

Tonight. At midnight.

 

The stumbling seesaw discussion that follows leads both young men – one we see and one we only hear over the telephone line – from Three's Company and Top Gun to nuclear war, from first kisses, loves lost, and bedroom politics, to the hidden wisdom of Ms. Pac-Man.

 

Contains mature themes and language that may not be suitable for children.

 

Tickets: $20.00

 

Tickets now on sale on the HAT website at http://www.highlandartstheatre.com/tough-call/

or by calling (902) 565-3637!
