On Theatre: ‘Michael Mysterious’


Edmonton’s La Cité Francophone hosts the world premiere of Alberta playwright Geoffrey Simon Brown’s play Michael Mysterious, October 14-24.

When 15-year-old Michael’s grandmother dies, he is taken in by Arlene, the mother of his estranged childhood best friend. She and her son Jeremy recently moved into a new suburban home with her new boyfriend Paul. Paul also has a child, a 17-year-old daughter named July.

Pyretic Productions describes the play as a “hilarious, dark, refreshingly honest portrayal of the awkwardness and loneliness of life and love.”

CKUA’s Scott Zielsdorf brought us more on Traffic Jams on Thursday, October 14, 2021.
