Fierce is an intense and intensely funny razor-sharp work centered on two women. A retired professional woman, arrested while wandering in traffic is found to be under the influence of a potent “drug cocktail.” She is ordered by the court to undergo treatment, and placed in a clinic run by a psychiatrist who has her own difficult history. A volatile 75-minute encounter, fueled by painful revelations – and their mutual distaste of politeness – provocatively ensues.
Filled with Walker’s trademark ferocious and finely-honed wit, Fierce stars veteran actor and performer Pandora Topp as the therapist Maggie, and two-time Jessie Richardson award winner Emmelia Gordon as her client, Jayne.
The playwright himself has stepped in to direct this Ottawa remount.
