Theatre Smith Gilmour’s adaptation of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying transgresses triumphantly all the principles of good taste. So scandalous, this 40 mile funeral procession becomes heroic. Farce and Tragedy, grotesque and sublime, meld together in this unique journey that seems to have no end. Relentless and tender, it is a rich and unsettling tale that takes us to the edge of sanity as each memer of the family struggles with the promise made to Addie Bundren. (As I Lay Dying Program)
