TRU Actors Workshop Theatre Presents “Dimly Perceived Threats to the System” by Jon Klein

TRU Actors Workshop Theatre presents Dimly Perceived Threats to the System by Jon Klein, directed by Robin Nichol and Jeffrey Daniels. The is the third production in their 2020/21 season.


Marlys is a professional consultant who specializes in coping strategies. Her husband, Josh, is a hard-working filmmaker who is finishing a documentary on family values. Their 13-year-old daughter drinks Coke for breakfast and spits in her schoolmates’ sandwiches in her one-person campaign to outlaw luncheon meats. Normal life goes side-splittingly awry in this pill-popping, ultra-caffeinated domestic comedy about a nuclear family approaching meltdown.

A video version of the show will be available to rent on Vimeo from March 1-15. Each viewing link will be available for 24 hours after purchase.
