Delicate Drama


Fragile. Handle with care. As J.B. Priestley’s crystalline drama has received terribly few revivals since its 1906 premiere, the play will require careful treatment. Mint Theater, called “a truffle hound of half-buried treasures,” has dug up another curiosity—a Toronto-set conflict between a pious businessman and his estranged nieces and nephew, born to a Native American mother.

Tuesdays-Thursdays, 7 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 4. Continues through Nov. 8, 2008
