Tough Call


An original two-act play by Viewer Discretion Productions, premiering at the Highland Arts Theatre in Sydney, Nova Scotia on Friday, June 1st and Saturday, June 2nd!


1986 – New Year's Eve.


Dean is working the graveyard shift at a local TV station, wasting time in the back office as the world outside cheers the coming of the new year. His solitary night of self-pity and Chinese food takeout is interrupted by a ringing telephone – a wrong number. On a normal night, that would be the end of it. But amid the beginnings of an awkward, halting conversation, the young caller inadvertently lets slip a secret.


He's planning to commit suicide. 


Tonight. At midnight.


The stumbling seesaw discussion that follows leads both young men – one we see and one we only hear over the telephone line – from Three's Company and Top Gun to nuclear war, from first kisses, loves lost, and bedroom politics, to the hidden wisdom of Ms. Pac-Man.


Contains mature themes and language that may not be suitable for children.


Tickets: $20.00
