Twenty-Something Theatre presents
by George F. Walker

Studio 1398 (formerly PTC Studio)
to Sep 3

“Walker has an eye for the ridiculous and an imagination that packs his plays with action”
--New York Times

After bringing the sold-out smash hit Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love to Vancouver in 2009 Twenty Something Theatre is bringing another contemporary Canadian revival to the city in 2011: Tough! By George F. Walker. Bobby and Tina are nineteen. Bobby gets caught cheating. Tina finds out she’s pregnant. Jill, Tina’s best friend, hates Bobby and welcomes the opportunity to kick his ass. Sometimes life is tough. First written in 1993 this dark comedy by George F. Walker is a wrenchingly funny, painful, and honest depiction of the conflicting desires and troubled relationships that continue to epitomize young people today. Directed by Jessie-nominated director Tamara McCarthy, Tough!, is on stage at Studio 1398 (formerly PTC Studio), Granville Island from August 24th – September 3rd, 2011.
