About this show

NWT is staging one of the most acclaimed Canadian plays of the past 25 years. The Crackwalker, directed by Robert Zick Jr., is a plunge into Kingston, Ontario's underworld of drugs, sex, mental illness and murder, where four local down-and-outs struggle to live, to love and to make a better world for themselves with tragic results. Judith Thompson's first play (premiered at NYC's Hudson Guild in the early 1980's) is a visceral exploration of the ugly realities of society's castaways, where the "Crackwalker" waits to crush anyone unable to walk the fine line between sanity and destruction. Appropriate For Ages: 16 and up
