Director: Luke Brown


The Storefront Theatre


March 26th, 2015 – April 11th, 2015


Set in the backwoods of northern Ontario, Nature of the Beast is a comedic and heartbreaking examination of sexual repression and desire. Francis lives alone in the woods in a house he built himself. Things are usually quiet until Mike, his nephew, shows up at his doorstep seeking refuge from his abusive parents. Francis wouldn’t mind if he wasn’t already entertaining another guest… who just happens to be tied up in his basement.  (
