Dead Metaphor

This play runs from February 28 to March 24, 2013 at ACT. A soldier returns from the Middle East to find work in this audacious and hilarious dark comedy.  ACT is hosting a live audience event on March 17 with our own Policy Director, Amy Fairweather, to discuss the plight of returning veterans with audience members.

When Dean returns home from the war in the Middle East and hits the job market, he discovers that his superior military skills don’t get him very far in the business world. He readjusts to non-bunker life by moving in with his aging parents and pregnant ex- (and soon-to-be current) wife. When he is offered a job as poster boy for a crusading politician on her own mission for “truth and justice,” his military ethics collide with the unscrupulous world of national political campaigns—and he discovers that his unique skill set may be his best asset after all.

A hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the hypocrisies and politics of postwar living, Dead Metaphor showcases the imaginative, audacious work of one of Canada’s most acclaimed playwrights.

Join us on March 17 to enjoy the performance and partake in the discussion.
