It’s been 15 years since a single act of sudden violence ripped the Lynch family apart. Since then, those left behind retreated into the routine of normal family life – whatever that means. But tonight, Nial Lynch comes home. It quickly becomes clear that the ghosts haunting this family have only been lying in wait.
The knives are out tonight.
(And not to cut the quiche.)
ARC — Toronto’s artist-led, internationally-focused indie theatre company — is honoured to present the English-language Canadian premiere of Deirdre Kinahan’s Moment.
Deepening their ties with the international performance community, ARC’s Resident Artists join Ireland’s Kinahan in bringing her whip-smart dialogue, crackling sense of pace and rhythm, and gracefully suspended moments of horror to fall-down, laugh-out-loud hilarity to the local stage.
