Problem Child

By George F. Walker


March 24, 25, 26 & 27, 2021 @ 8pm

Stuck in a room. Stuck in the system. A desperate mother and her hapless partner are confined to a hotel room while they try to put their delinquent pasts behind them in order to regain custody of their baby. One of Canada’s most prolific and popular playwrights, Walker is best known for his fast-paced social comedies that satirize the woes of contemporary culture under the pressures of capitalism. 

NOTE: This play was chosen to offer students in our fourth-year performance focus challenging contemporary roles for their final required credits, all while maintaining physical distancing and masking guidelines. There will be two alternating, four-person casts. See website for cast list and performance schedule.
