Must-see: Premiere of Eternal Hydra

In May 2009, Toronto's Coach House Books is publishing Eternal Hydra by Anton Piatigorsky and during the same month, Toronto-based Crow's Theatre is presenting the premiere at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Director Chris Abraham gathers a stellar cast, featuring some of Toronto’s most celebrated performers:

David Ferry - director of the multi-award winning The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
Sam Malkin - member of Toronto’s acclaimed Actors Repertory Company
Liisa Repo-Martell - Gemini Award winning actress and veteran stage performer
Karen Robinson - regularly seen on stage at the Stratford Festival and Dream in High Park

Eternal Hydra is stunning piece of theatre that reunites the award winning duo of Piatigorsky and Abraham. Obsession, identity politics, and the myth of genius collide in this gripping literary mystery. Travelling from the high-powered publishing world of present day New York, to 1930’s Paris, and as far back as the American Civial War, this story of a long lost-novel and the controversy surrounding it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

A must-see theatre event of the season! Don’t miss your opportunity to see the show’s short Toronto run before it tours to Ottawa as a featured production for The Magnetic North Theatre Festival in June.

“Piatigorsky exposes the human and the divine as two sides of the same coin”
-- Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail
