                    Straddling the line of autobiographic exposition and stand-up comedy, Time Served takes a long, hard look at one man’s life lived on the margins in Vancouver, British Columbia. Evocative and uncomfortable, this show competently charts a difficult path between dealing with serious questions (like addiction, social exclusion and cycles of violence) and biting social commentary. The content and delivery can be jarring at times, but I feel like that is the point — we’re supposed to feel uneasy and question not just how we would feel if placed in the protagonists shoes but the ways in which we are so accepting of simplified and marginalized the experiences of those moving in and out of the legal system in Canada.

                    Funnier, harsher and honester (?) than an episode of Orange is the New Black, this play invites us to look into a world we like to pretend doesn’t exist and I would encourage everyone to grab a ticket and take a long, hard stare into the abyss.

                    4 / 5 stars
