A Crooked Man: Canada's First All-Armenian Play

The play, A Crooked Man is a story about family, stressed director and lead actor Hrant Alianak during my interview with him*. Although it's his fifth play dealing with the Armenian genocide, Hrant stressed that the inter-generational aspect of the play will appeal to a much wider audience that just those interested in the historical tragedy. A Crooked Man is Canada's first play with an all-Armenian cast in an Armenian-themed play. Hrant Alianak is also the founder and Artistic Director of Alianak Theatre Productions.

A Crooked Man runs until March 2nd at The Theatre Centre. Tues-Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2.30pm Tickets: Previews & Sunday Matinees $10, Regular Run: Tues-Fri $21, Sat $25 (Discounts for Students, Seniors, Arts Workers & Groups).

For tickets, visit www.artsboxoffice.ca or call 416-504-7529 (box office).
