Libby Brodie Productions continues its work with new writing and international productions with the Canadian Premiere of Permanence at the acclaimed Tarragon Theatre in Toronto this July.
Bridging the globe with creative teams working both in London and Toronto this is a truly international collaboration on a piece of bold new writing.
“The texture will always be there, underneath, no matter how many coats you put over it, but I like it that way.”
Rebecca loves sex – as does Steve. Inside Steve’s intimate, turpentine-scented studio their affair blossoms and implodes in a sensual, paint-laden battle of the sexes but at what point does self-expression become self-harm?
Sex, art and addiction clash in Permanence, a raw and provocative new play asking us if one can ever truly love if one is lying to oneself?
Starring Samantha Michelle and Ludovic Hughes and directed by the award-winning Hannah Price, “Permanence” will run at the Tarragon Theatre, Toronto from 19th July – 6th August.
