With standout performances, this new play by Zee Zee Theatre explores the world of inter-generational relationships and unleashes the darkness that exists just underneath a thin skin. It was a coming out story of such by Trevor (Dallas Sauer) as a slip of the tongue telling his mother Harmony (Deborah Williams), the story moved on as Harmony was going on the first date in ages with a man named Peter (an insurance salesman) who turned out to spill the beans on his own sexuality that he (Shawn Macdonald) was gay. After enjoying Peter’s company, Harmony invites him back for a drink, the evening goes on and when Harmony goes to bed, Trevor and Peter end up falling for each other. When Harmony walks in on her seventeen year old son Trevor kissing Peter it unleashes something powerful and sacred in her. Their three lives are set in motion – perpetually intertwined. Lowest Common Denominator explores the often-controversial world of intergenerational relationships and unleashes the darkness that exists just underneath a thin skin.
The play is directed by Cameron MacKenzie. Tickets are available at ticketstonight.ca or 604-684-2787 and the show is on until March 30 at PAL Theatre, 581 Cardero Street,
