HONOUR: Tech Week Updates, Sneak Peek Photos and & Play Info

Hello my fellow Cabaret enthusiasts! This post happens to be very near and dear to my heart, because it involves the opening of Honour at Cabaret Theatre this weekend (December 7, 8 & 9)!!

Honour will mark my debut on the Cabaret stage and this experience has been life-changing. Not only do I get to perform a play that is one of the most beautiful plays I have ever read, the Honour cast and crew have all become my close friends. 

BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME ALREADY, FOR GOSH SAKES! You came here to see some photos and get some updates before coming to see Honour this weekend, am I right?

Well, below is the obligatory FB event information for your viewing pleasure (as well as the link to the event).

Cabaret Theatre Proudly Presents:
Honour
by Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed By: Courtney King

December 7th and 8th at 8pm and December 9th at 7pm

“Do I love you Gus? Perhaps I loved belonging to you-and thus to this earth, in fact, to the very earth? I want to make you feel a memory of this. So that one day in a fleeting moment, you feel the surest sense of lovelessness and through that-the unmistakable clasp of terror.”-Honor

“Honour” is a play about a man in his fifties who leaves his wife Honor for a young reporter named Claudia after thirty-two years of marriage. Claudia is only a little older than Gus and Honor’s daughter Sophie. This familiar tale is told in a different light, it is stripped completely down to how we communicate with each other in difficult situations. Through the course of this play, the characters are forced to come to terms with the situations affecting their lives. The play is based on confrontations and conversations between the characters that force about the topics of; love, trust, safety, responsibility, lust, history, and of course, honor. This is a story that everyone can relate to because it focuses on the complexity of familial experience, which is something that everyone can share!
