David Mirvish presents the Why Not Theatre production of BUTCHER
By Nicolas Billon
Directed by Weyni Mengesha
"Not for the faint of heart" - Globe & Mail
WARNING: Depictions of extreme violence and coarse language. Who is the Butcher? A mysterious old man is dropped off at a police station, wearing a foreign military uniform, and a Santa hat, with a meat hook dangling around his neck. As a lawyer, a police officer, and a translator struggle to unravel the truth, they uncover a past that won’t stay buried, and a decades old quest for justice that must be served. Haunted by events a world away, no one is who they seem to be.Read More
