Capitalism, Race, and Pop Culture. You know, the small stuff.
Sidney can feel her career slipping down the drain. No one loves a pop star when she’s past forty. Unless she wants to join the ranks of the has-beens on the casino circuit, she needs to reinvent herself – and quick. But what if she regains her former glory and still feels that something is missing?
In its Canadian premiere, ROCKABYE offers a satirical and dark portrait of our self-involved, celebrity-obsessed culture, starring ARC Co-Artistic Producer Deborah Drakeford in a career-defining role.
ROCKABYE is an ARC Production, directed by Co-Artistic Producer Rob Kempson, running from from January 26 to February 11, 2024 at Factory Theatre, 125 Bathurst St in Toronto.
ALL TICKETS ONLY $20 UNTIL NOVEMBER 30!
