Crabdance

By Beverley Simons

Crabdance is a tragicomedy in three acts in which a lonely, middle-aged woman plays elaborate, ritualistic games with three men whom she forces to play the roles of her son, her husband and her lover.

“An unusual and searing play about a woman caught in a cage of frustration and neglect.”
Vancouver Sun

“One of the most theatrical contemporary plays that I have ever read.”
— Malcom Black
