Red Like Fruit is the latest work from Governor General’s Award winning playwright, Hannah Moscovitch. The play features a man telling a woman’s story. Lauren asks Luke to narrate her life: her fraying mental health, the growing sense of unease she feels in the world. While Lauren’s been reporting on a high profile case of domestic violence, she’s been thinking back with eerie ambivalence on a set of sexual events from her adolescence, and something in her has started to crash. Soon, Lauren can no longer comprehend her own decisions and desires (like why she asked Luke to narrate for her in the first place). Red Like Fruit interrogates the role and impact of men’s voices in women’s stories and delves into the many contradictions and complexities of complicity, consent and traumatic memory in the post #MeToo era.

(The play an opportunity to) “Mess with the audience’s feelings about what role the male gaze and voice plays in defining how women feel about their lives.”
