Red Phone

September 23 - September 26

The Centaur Theatre Company’s Portico Project presents


by Boca del Lupo

“Innovative. Unique. The theatrical equivalent to singing in the shower!”

Vancouver’s Boca del Lupo turns the tables in this intriguing, one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. Two phone booths rest at opposite ends of Centaur’s expansive portico. Each contains a vintage red phone and a teleprompter. Two by two, audience members become the stars as they act out one of eight 10-minute plays, scrolling on the prompters, each from their individual booth. A socially distant encounter that is peculiarly intimate.

Whether you’re adventurous, curious, an introvert or extrovert, everyone is invited to pick up the phone and engage in urgent, touching, funny, and thought-provoking conversations written by some of Canada’s most exciting playwrights, including two bilingual scripts written by Montreal artists, Alice Abracen and Omari Newton.

Local playwright, Alice Abracen, and Montreal expat, Omari Newton, join a diverse list of other contributing Canadian playwrights.
