Throwing Shade Theatre Company presents Brad Fraser’s modern classic about life, love, identity and death.
Set in Edmonton, Alberta, the story revolves around a pair of self-absorbed twenty-somethings: Candy and David. Candy is your typical sexually active young woman desperately looking for a soulmate; David is a gay waiter, who's harbouring a secret past and is utterly jaded about life and love.
While Candy turns to lesbianism, David finds himself torn between Kane, a teenager that has a crush on David who recognises him from his days as a child star, and Bernie, an old friend who harbours his own dark secret…
First presented by Alberta Theatre Projects at the playRites '89 Festival in Calgary, Alberta, Unidentified Human Remains was immediately controversial for its violence, nudity, frank dialogue, and sexual explicitness. It nevertheless received critical acclaim; it was named one of the 10 best plays of the year by TIME.
"Off-Broadway's newest and best play... it stunningly blends punk popular appeal and poetic power." - TIME
"Pungent dialogue and highly graphic sexuality, the play repeatedly arrests the audience's attention." - NEW YORK TIMES
