A young woman struggling to find her voice while suffering from a debilitating disease. The powerful drama explores the limits of compassion, the impact of her condition on those closest to her, and the difficult choices facing our heroine who wins over the audience with her determination, joy and humour. At times silly, sensual, and shocking, the narrative is always beautifully framed around the real choices and outcomes facing the characters.
Soliciting Temptation, a Sage Theatre joint production with Edmonton’s Shadow Theatre (March 9 to 26. 2017), opens with a provocative exotic hotel room encounter between a middle-aged white man and a young, possibly too young, Eastern woman. What starts as a rendezvous quickly flips as the woman reveals herself to be there to challenge his choices and his privilege. She’s arrived with a back story of her own. The power shifts back and forth between these two intricate characters throughout the story.
