Getting to Room Temperature is Back in Ottawa
January 8 - January 13
Starring Robert Bockstael
Written and directed by Arthur Milner
Design by Martin Conboy
January 8-13, 2018
Monday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Friday & Saturday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
A hard-hitting, sentimental and funny play about dying — based on a mostly true story.
“The weighty material flows through Robert Bockstael’s seemingly effortless delivery weaving a believable humor with poignant remembrances and effective arguments.”
- Jennifer Cavanagh, Apartment 613
“Bockstael controlled the mood of the audience throughout the performance with aplomb, drawing us through humour into the serious emotional business of death and back out the other side.”
- Wes Babcock, New Ottawa Critics
“The provocative one-man show … targets our sense of right and wrong. Milner, through the accessible voice of Bockstael, wraps his questions in warm anecdotes about his family, sprinkles the show with humour, and lovingly depicts his vital, opinionated mother.”
- Patrick Langston, Ottawa Citizen
