Cockroach

A man from an unnamed Middle Eastern country hustles to survive in icy cold Montrťal. Heís a charmingly treacherous liar, a thief with a haunted past. Heís got problems: sometimes he thinks heís a cockroach. How can he escape the dark corners of his life, get beyond survival and start to thrive? When he meets the man who hurt the love of his life, he canít help himself. He starts to plot revenge.

ďThe best-selling novel upon which this brand new play is based was a finalist on Canada Reads, and one of the Globe and Mailís top 100 Books. This is a modern-day thriller, a gripping story that feels so relevant to me. Hereís a portrait of Canadian society that doesnít avoid the shadows, told from such an unusual point of view. After all, a cockroach sees everything. Iím thrilled that we commissioned this theatrical adaptation, and that Iíll be directing it.Ē
