Details: VideoCabaret presents the World Premiere of Cliff Cardinal’s dark comedy, Too Good to be True, at a brand new theatrical home in downtown Toronto. Playwright and performer Cliff Cardinal was recently honoured by double-Doras, and an Edinburgh Festival Award, for the script and performance of his incendiary solo play Huff in 2018.
The superb cast is led by Cheri Maracle as Maria, a beautiful fabulist and dauntless mom on the lam with her teenage children, played by Patti Shaughnessy and Ryan Cunningham. As the police close in on the suspected vigilante, Maria borrows an empty house and holds a last supper with her budding son and pregnant daughter.
