in Dawson City it's -40 with an ice fog...so i'm staying inside and thinking about a great event going on elsewhere! my friend Colin Taylor's adaptation of The Polished Hoe opens tomorrow night at Harbourfront in Toronto (for some reason, Harbourfront is now being called Enwave Theatre, just to confuse everyone). Colin has spent years working on this play, spending hours talking with author Austin Clarke. The novel The Polished Hoe won the Giller Prize, the Trillium Prize, and the overall Commonwealth Prize for the Best Book in the British Commonwealth....and I think the play is going to be even better! when the run in Toronto finishes, the show is going to Barbados.
now that's a nice sunny thought for a day like today!
