Beatrice and Virgil
This new adaptation of Life of Pi author Yann Martel’s 2010 novel is a fable about the difficulty of representing the Holocaust in art. The story has layers: on one level, it’s about the relationship between two men, one a writer and the other a taxidermist. At the same time, it’s an allegory starring a donkey and a monkey, both recovering from an event referred to as “the horrors.” Sarah Garton Stanley directs. Until May 11. $35–$45. The Factory Theatre, 125 Bathurst St., factorytheatre.ca
