Warning: Restitution may be harmful to your health

Okay, apparently everyone HATES Restitution (on at Factory Theatre right now), not just Richard Ouzounian. So, if you go, be aware that apparently I'm the only person who kinda liked it.

Kamal Al-Solaylee in The Globe and Mail writes, "What the feck? That just about sums up the proceedings in Michael O'Brien's Restitution: An Irish-Canadian Rhapsody and the only critical response I can immediately muster to this latest addition to the Factory Theatre hall of shame. I mean, honestly, feck, feck, feck."

John Coulbourn's Toronto Sun review is more tempered, but not glowing in any way: "Press notes for Restitution carry the warning: 'Extreme Violence, Much Blasphemy, And Tons Of Profanity.' What it doesn't say is that, beyond that, it doesn't have much to offer."

Caveat Emptor.
