The Test

I recently saw the Canadian Stage production of  The Test.
It was an unsettling play with shades of Othello and Maury Povich. It starred a a Street Legal Reunion of Sonja Smits and Eric Petersen. It starts out with a DNA paternity test and ends with death and destruction in a political family. Many of the elderly theatre goers with me had trouble hearing the dialogue. One elderly man actually yelled speak up. The play is a translation of a Swiss German piece. It brought up many issues about family, loyalty, marriage and politics. Overall it was a good play, but did have some directorial issues.
