The Particulars is the darkly funny and subtly powerful story of one insomniac’s struggle to maintain a daily routine in the face of a home invasion.
Performed as a fusion of dance and theatre, Gordon battles his invaders on two main fronts — in his home, where he believes he is dealing with a vermin infestation, and in his yard, where insects have invaded his garden.
By day, Gordon forges systematically ahead, assiduously in control of every aspect of his life. But by night, the scratching which he has begun to hear in his walls is unravelling him, driving Gordon to the edge of cosmic desperation.
Theatre critics across Canada and in New York have been unanimous in their praise for The Particulars. Called “Smart, strange and stirring,” by the New York Times, “profound” by nytheatre.com, and “a revelation” by the Montréal Gazette.
