Lowest Common Denominator

A Workshop Presentation

by Dave Deveau

Directed by Cameron Mackenzie

Dramaturgy by Patrick McDonald

November 24, 2012, Carousel Theatre

Harmony is slowly recovering from a messy divorce and ends up on a date with Peter, an insurance salesman. But after a blissful booze-filled night, Harmony finds Peter in bed with her seventeen year old son Trevor. Lowest Common Denominator examines intergenerational relationships and delves into the human darkness that exists just underneath a thin skin.

Zee Zee Theatre is developing Lowest Common Denominator because I believe intergenerational relationships, specifically between two men, are a highly controversial, complicated affair that unlike their heterosexual counterparts often get written off as perversion or abuse. Zee Zee Theatre very much wants to explore all sides of this story, investigating what makes this just so sensitive.
