Slack Tide



Slack Tide, written by Edmonton’s Bevin Dooley, is not for the faint of heart. The subject matter is a bit macabre at times and might require you to watch something a bit more lighthearted afterwards to cleanse the palette. In 45 minutes, this play attempts to understand the topic of forgiveness through the lens of a three-person cast: Matty (Chris W. Cook), Annie (Julia Guy), and Mary (Merran Carr-Wiggin). Much of the play is spent on exploring the dynamic between estranged brother and sister Matty and Annie. She's dealing with the recent release of Matty from prison, but it comes at the cost of overdrawn silences that are awkward at times. The reason Matty was in prison has something to do with former friend Mary, and he wants her forgiveness. When the play does reach its denouement, your questions will have been resolved with an unexpected twist that renders a profound revelation. Reviewed by Jasmine Salazar.
