      Open your ears

      When Alexandra Wood’s The Human Ear opened at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, the Guardian called the play “fascinating, intricate and tricky”. And the eerie setup certainly sounds so: Lucy’s father was killed in the Gulf War and her mother’s just been murdered in an attack on a city bus. Now her brother is back after running away 10 years ago—but is he who he says he is? A young theatre company from Ireland, Untold Wants Theatre, stages this North American premiere in Vancouver. Prepare your brain for the puzzle. 

      The Human Ear is at Pacific Theatre from Wednesday (July 18) to July 25.
