Gangway! Theatre Co. and The Edge Productions are presenting Stephen Massicotte’s The Clockmaker, Directed by Miriam Goldstein, at Grand Canyon Theatre in Toronto!
Show Dates: September 5th – 15th, 2019
“WHO ARE YOU?” Monsieur Pierre (the immigration official) poses his usual question, but Heinrich’s unusual answer sets in motion a metaphysical rollercoaster. Why would a simple statement of name and profession bring so much attention to an unassuming clockmaker? Maybe because that’s two more things than anyone else in this place remembers…? Soon, Heinrich is reminding his new friend Frieda of memories she’s forgotten and even summoning up a few of his own—of forbidden love, and crimes he may or may not have committed. Is it possible to be guilty of being about to commit a crime, as Monsieur Pierre suspects? And why wouldn’t one recall something so significant as premeditating murder? Armed with a newfound-yet-familiar love for each other, Heinrich and Frieda set about solving this Kafkaesque puzzle. Winner of the Betty Mitchell Award for Best New Play (2009) and named best Canadian play of the 2010-2011 season at the inaugural Toronto Theatre Critics’ Awards.
