In Sundry Languages

224

Presented by Toronto Laboratory Theatre June 27-29, 2019

Featuring Greek Language Theatre

Toronto Laboratory Theatre/Théâtre Laboratorie de Toronto will present four performances of In Sundry

Languages, their one-of-a-kind multilingual theatre experiment.

Starring Arfina Lamy, Ahmed Moneka  /Art Babayants,, Lavinia Salinas, Maria Kordoni / Μαρία Κορδώνη, Riaz Mahmood After playing to sold-out houses at Toronto Fringe in 2017 and receiving raving reviews after its most recent Ottawa

performances in May 2019, it is now coming back to Toronto in its reimagined version. In Sundry Languages weaves together comical scenes on immigration, language learning, accents, and what you really mean when you ask “Where are you from?” The wildly diverse cast made up of Toronto performers uses Bangla, Arabic, Greek, Spanish, Hebrew, Comorian, French and English, amongst many other languages to play with exclusion and inclusion throughout the show. It is a perfect theatre outing for native and non-native speakers of any language!
