About the Show
A teacher-student confrontation flies out of control. What has pushed them to this point? Do we blame the student's, the parents or the school system? How much fault rests with a society desensitized to violence? In this riveting new work, playwright Michele Riml brings us into a school counselor's office - an intimate space where ideas are exchanged, threats are made, and no solution seems the easy way out. Rage challenges all of us to confront our notions of what makes a radical and what makes a pacifist. In a life or death situation, how would you react?
Rage was first produced by Green Thumb Theatre in Vancouver, BC in 2004. The award-winning script and production was lauded both by critics and educators and in the following years received multiple revivals and tours.
It has also been produced by the Globe Theatre in Regina, SK (2007) and had its French debut (Translation by Sarah Migneron) with Theatre La Catapulte in Ottawa, ON (2009). Theatre La Catapulte's production later toured to Toronto (2010), where it was presented by Theatre Francais de Toronto.
