Description


In this mesmerizing dramatization of Atwood’s Booker Prize-winning novel, Iris Chase reflects on her privileged yet troubled youth in 1930s Toronto and the events leading up to the car crash that killed her younger sister. A spine-tingling mystery nested within a tragic love story, The Blind Assassin interweaves Iris’s confessional memoir with excerpts from a posthumously published erotic novel that earned dead Laura a cult following. The tension between these alternating storylines coils ever tighter until the last of the Chase family secrets is released in a stunning twist. The Blind Assassin is dramatized by Michael O’Brien, who also adapted Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale. O’Brien’s brilliantly paced production features a cast of 20 and stars Patricia Hamilton, Amy Rutherford and Anick Obonsawin as Iris at different stages of her life. Tom McCamus plays the mysterious “He” of the steamy novel-within-the-novel, while Robert Bockstael and Fiona Reid are memorably vicious as Iris’s wealthy husband and sister-in-law. The Blind Assassin was a finalist in the 2005 New York Festivals Radio Awards.
