Description

"Isolated" brings together two inventive, disturbing plays by one of Canada's most intriguing dramatic voices.

In "Recovery," people around the world are addicted to a mysterious substance. Large recovery centres are set up, promising refuge, treatment and healing to millions of addicts. But all is not what it seems. Following three residents of a facility in Antarctica, McArthur delivers a quirky and unsettling play that reveals the fear and isolation of the oppressed individual, and the consequences of a medicalized society.

In "Get Away," David finds two beautiful teenagers when he escapes to an isolated cabin where he hopes to cure his unusually persistent listlessness. Sensing that they might need protecting - and may be crucial to his survival - he invites them in, but the roles of predator and prey become unclear as the three become dangerously intertwined. Both fantastical and horrifying, "Get Away" provides a resonating look at the destructive nature of longing and our desperate need for love.
