Upcoming Comedy ‘Lawrence and Holloman’ at PTE

By Tyler Sutherland

An upcoming comedic play at Prairie Theatre Exchange is promising to be quite the crowd-pleaser.

“Lawrence and Holloman” is a comedy from playwright Morris Panych, and features Matthew Edison as the obnoxiously optimistic Lawrence and Winnipeg-born Michael Spencer-Davis as the pessimistic Holloman.

“(It’s) about the obnoxiousness of optimism, the sociability of cynicism, and the true meaning of life,” said Robert Metcalfe, Artistic Director at PTE and director of the play.

Matthew Edison was last seen in Winnipeg performing Darcy in MTC’s production of “Pride & Prejudice” last year. Winnipeg-born Michael Spencer-Davis appeared in several plays at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival and last on PTE stage in 2006 for “Apple”.

“Lawrence & Holloman” runs February 11 – February 28, 2010, with a preview on February 10. Tickets start at $38 for adults and $30 for students and seniors and can be purchased online at www.pte.mb.ca or through the PTE Box Office at (204) 942-5483.
