Event Details

2b theatre company presents the world premiere of Hannah Moscovitch’s Red Like Fruit at the Bus Stop Theatre in Halifax from April 3-21.

The play features a man telling a woman’s story. Lauren asks Luke to narrate her life: her fraying mental health, the growing sense of unease she feels in the world. While Lauren’s been reporting on a high-profile case of domestic violence, she’s been thinking back with eerie ambivalence on a set of sexual events from her adolescence, and something in her has started to crash. Soon, Lauren can no longer comprehend her own decisions and desires (like why she asked Luke to narrate for her in the first place). Red Like Fruit interrogates the many contradictions and complexities of complicity, consent, patriarchy and traumatic memory in the post #MeToo era.

Moscovitch calls the play an opportunity to “Mess with the audience’s feelings about what role the male gaze and voice plays in defining how women feel about their lives.” She says: “I’ve realized the patriarchy has made it easy for me to doubt myself, but somehow, when a man says something is true, I accept it.”
