For its April 1st showing, Sheets, a play by Canadian playwright and director Salvatore Antonio, wants its audience to turn up in their birthday suit. And no, it’s no April Fool’s joke.
They’re calling it a naturalist night, where clothing is not optional, contrary to what the Toronto Star previously reported.
Intimacy is a major theme of the play, which takes place in a hotel room. It shows the various goings on inside the room, the experiences of its inhabitants which reveal their desires and vulnerabilities.
However, it is more than just a simple play about human desire. It shows the complexities of the human experience, how broken some people are, and how much they want to connect with others.
Sheets features the finest ensemble of actors including Danny Ghantous, Taborah “Tabby” Johnson, David Reale, Prince Amponsah, William Ellis, Dayle McLeod, Alice Snaden, Tyler Stentiford, and Jennifer Wigmore.
Sheets is staged at The Theatre Centre – Franco Boni Mainstage at 1115 Queen Street West, Toronto.
