The Trouble with Mr. Adams

The Trouble with Mr. Adams

October 20, 2015 – November 29, 2015


The dirty tip of cupid’s arrow pierces high-school coach Mr. Adams when he falls for his too-young volleyball star – a love that threatens to destroy his life, family, and career. This dark, revealing new play from Tarragon Playwright-in-Residence Gord Rand exposes the male mid-life crisis in all its awkward and ruinous glory.

“Played with a bravery that is breathtaking; brilliantly written and directed with clinical precision.” – The Toronto Star

4**** “A stellar central performance by Chris Earle; elegantly structured; a very intelligent play.” – 

“A bracing, jaw-clenching play; Director Lisa Peterson has directed a tight, taut production that never seems rushed but slowly grips you.” –

“Director Lisa Peterson has mostly created a kind of seamless production, where one rarely thinks about how it’s done, as we are caught up in the emotional tangle of the characters. It’s an accomplished piece of work that deserves to be seen & heard.” –

The approximate running time is 80 minutes with no intermission. Please note this production contains sexually-explicit content and partial nudity.
