Objections to Sex and Violence
Following explosions, a member of an anarchist cell escapes to the seaside, pursued by her family and lovers.
What has she done? What is she planning?
Is she a terrorist or a revolutionary?
Objections to Sex and Violence, a rarely produced early work by Churchill, premiered in 1975 in the wake of a rash of guerrilla actions by youthful militants across Europe and North America. These destructive incidents left little appetite for considerations of the complex motivations behind the violence.
Churchill's play raises questions about guerrilla feminism, fidelity and violence as agent for social change.
The Sex and Violence collective brings together some of Toronto's most exciting theatre artists, with support from Praxis Theatre and FeverGraph Theatre, to bring this rarely produced work as the inaugural production at the brand new Artscape Sandbox, a 6000-square-foot venue in the heart of the Entertainment District.
About Praxis: "there was hardly a theatre company more vocal, inventive, and relevant than Praxis... Not to mention the fact that their shows.. .demonstrated creativity and political awareness that few others matched."
About Fevergraph: "Exceptional. The performances were raw and probing. FeverGraph's re-examination of Look Back in Anger not to be missed" Istvan Duglin
