Brungergould Productions' The Anorak at Hope Theatre
Brungergould Productions presents Adam Kelly Morton's one-man show The Anorak, directed by Matthew Gould, beginning previews on 02 Jul 2014, officially opening on 05 Jul and continuing its limited engagement through to 26 Jul 2014 at the Hope Theatre in Islington, north London.
Synopsis: 'On Wednesday December 6th 1989, Marc Lépine entered École Polytechnic of The University of Montreal armed with a semi-automatic rifle and a hunting knife. His quarry... women.
The Anorak is a raw and harrowing story of one man's isolation and offers the viewer a glimpse into the dark mind of one of Canada's most hated and perhaps misunderstood criminals.
The play reveals Marc’s life from his abusive childhood, care homes, failed relationships and dreams; up to the brutal killings and his eventual suicide. Not dissimilar to other shootings such as Dawson College, Columbine and Sandy Hook, this perpetrator leaves in his wake not only devastation of unimaginable magnitude, but also the question, why?'
