Arts Worker Discount: 2-for-1 Ticket Deal to Private Eyes, Rogue and Peasant Theatre Company

Rogue and Peasant Theatre Company would like to offer all TAPA members a 2-for-1 ticket deal to see Steven Dietz’s astonishing play Private Eyes at the Lower Ossington Theatre until November 21st. To reserve your tickets, call 416-915-6747 x222 and quote the “TAPA” rate!

Private Eyes is a comedy of suspicion where nothing is ever quite what it seems. Matthew’s wife, Lisa, is having an affair with her British theatre director Adrian. Or is the affair part of the play they are rehearsing? Or has Matthew just imagined the whole thing in order to have something to report to Frank, his therapist. And then there is Cory – the mysterious women who seems to shadow the others – who brings the story to a surprising conclusion. Or does she? The audience will be playing the role of detective in this hilarious play about love, lust and the power of deception that will engage your heart and mind.

Robert Crew (The Toronto Star) says: “David Rosser’s Matthew is sunny, energetic and engaging and Nora Sheehan… brings some unexpected warmth and humanity…”
