Centaur Theatre Company presents the world premiere of In Absentia by Morris Panych and directed by Roy Surette from January 31 - March 4, 2012.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder...but for how long?
It is as if the rigid frozen winter never thawed for the year since hearing of her husband’s abduction while on a business trip to Columbia. Colette, herself, has remained emotionally motionless, for four seasons, isolated in their country cottage, waiting for word, or perhaps of even more significance to Colette, a connection. A young stranger in a jean jacket waves to her from the frozen lake – a sign? She emerges to give him her husband’s parka – strangely, the boy has a likeness to Tom. Tom, who has disappeared but still speaks to her.
Brought to light by Panych’s illustrious sense of humour and deep empathy for his characters, In Absentia is both a riveting mystery and moving story of vanished love.
Morris Panych is a two-time winner of the Governor General Award for Drama.
In Absebtia stars Jillian Fargey, Susan Glover, Jade Hassouné, Paul Hopkins, and Carlo Mestroni.
