For the first time in North America, Expandido, a Torontonian Queer Latino Theatre Group, brings to the stage The Rage of Narcissus. This critically acclaimed play, penned by Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco and adapted by director Marcio Beauclair, is performed by the talented Matthew Romantini.

An introspective journey unfolds within the confines of a hotel room as Blanco prepares a speech about the Narcissus myth, leading him into the darkness within us all. This play is a masterful blend of gripping thriller and intellectual exploration, styled as 'autofiction'—the genre that centres the author's subjectivity—creating dramatic reflections.

The Rage of Narcissus has been internationally celebrated, voted one of the best Off West End London premieres in 2021, and now makes its Canadian debut at Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace. Be prepared for a compelling narrative that weaves elements of Greek myth, modern philosophy, and Blanco's own life details with absolute fiction.

Don't miss this unique theatrical event directed by Marcio Beauclair and featuring Matthew Romantini.
