THE DAMAGE DONE


  • The Citadel 304 Parliament Street Toronto, ON, M5A 3A4 Canada

Audiences first met Bobby and Tina in Walker's 1992 play, Tough! (and its sequel, Moss Park) when the hapless couple were 19 and Tina unexpectedly pregnant. The Damage Done flashes forward with an unflinching look at Bobby and Tina's lives 18 years later-long after their brief marriage-where there are now two teenage daughters in the picture whom Tina, a social worker on the brink of total burn-out, has been raising largely on her own. Bobby has never gotten over the fact that it was Tina who left him, and his adolescent career fantasies (becoming a musician or a South Pole explorer) have gone nowhere. A long-since recovered alcoholic, Bobby has decided to try his hand at writing a play, and, in fact, has just written a first draft based on the pathetic, sad, ridiculous entanglements of their lives.
