  • George Ignatieff Theatre 15 Devonshire Place Toronto, ON, M5S 2C8 Canada (map)

Death Meets Harlequin by award-winning Toronto playwright Nina Kaye is a family friendly comedy that integrates music, Commedia dell’Arte, symbolism, and archetype to explore themes of family, love, loss and transformation. Harlequin is a wide-eyed boy who loves to chase butterflies and play guitar, while his strict father the Doctor, despairs at his son’s lack of work ethic. A musical encounter with Death awakens the father and son to new perspectives.
