by Daniel Karasik
Alex may or may not be dying. Confronted with his mortality, he searches for sex and connection in hotel bars — with his wife Brit’s conflicted blessing. LITTLE DEATH, the lyrical and spare new play by CBC Fiction Prize winner and Dora Award-nominated playwright Daniel Karasik, asks fundamental questions about marriage, fidelity, and the intimate needs of men and women.
Karasik’s successful application piece to the Royal Court Theatre’s Young Writers Programme in London, UK, LITTLE DEATH has since been developed at the Tarragon Theatre, Stratford Festival, and with off-Broadway’s The New Group.
