Looks like another Montreal theatre group has been affected by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has decided to take the live streaming route.
This time, it’s Infinitheatre, who hoped to open their 2020-2021 season with a live production of Paul Van Dyck’s play “King of Canada”. And because of the virus, Infinitheatre, in association with KIN Experience, will present two livestream performances of “King of Canada” on November 6 at 7:30 p.m., and November 8 at 2 p.m.
Starring Brian Dooley and Ellen David, the play focuses on William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada’s long-serving prime minister; in particular, the focus is on King’s long time fascination with the spiritual world. It takes place during a seance session between King and a medium while he was serving as Prime Minister of Canada, as they conjure up 30 different characters, as well as three deceased pet dogs who shared the name of “Pat”.
Admission to either livestream performance is free, and donations will be accepted.
