Production Notes


A Firehall Arts Centre Production

“Dead Metaphor is dead serious, but it’s still seriously funny”– The San Francisco Examiner

“There’s no denying that Dead Metaphor hits a bull’s-eye when it comes to the funny bone.” – Mercury News

George F. Walker’s dark comic Dead Metaphor introduces us to a former sniper in Afghanistan who returns to Canada to find that the job market at home does not have a lot of practical use for his particular skill set.

With aging parents and a pregnant wife, he finds himself working for as an assistant to a contemptuous politician seeking election. And that is when all of the craziness begins!

Directed by Chelsea Haberlin
