REDBONE COONHOUND

REDBONE COONHOUND

By Amy Lee Lavoie & Omari Newton
An Arts Club Silver Commission as part of a Rolling World Premiere with Tarragon Theatre (Toronto) and Imago Theatre (Montreal)

World Premiere

October 6–30, 2022
Newmont Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre
A NEW COMEDY WITH BITE

Out for a walk in their West End neighbourhood, Mike and Marissa—an interracial couple—meet a dog with an unfortunate breed name: redbone coonhound. This small detail unleashes a cascading debate between them about race and their relationship that manifests as a series of micro-plays, each satirizing contemporary perspectives on modern culture. Through its hard-hitting comedic elements, Redbone Coonhound explores the intricacies of race, systemic power, and privilege in remarkable and surprising ways.
