2b is thrilled to present the world premiere of Red Like Fruit by Governor General’s Award-winning playwright, Hannah Moscovitch. Lauren asks Luke to narrate her life: her fraying mental health, the growing sense of unease she feels in the world. While Lauren’s been reporting on a high profile case of domestic violence, she’s been thinking back with eerie ambivalence on a set of sexual events from her adolescence, and something in her has started to crash. Soon, Lauren can no longer comprehend her own decisions and desires (like why she asked Luke to narrate for her in the first place). Red Like Fruit interrogates the many contradictions and complexities of complicity, consent, patriarchy and traumatic memory in the post #MeToo era.

Written by Hannah Moscovitch
