2017-2018 Three New Plays by Canadian Artists

This collection of brand new work, from world premiers to workshop performances, centres around secret inner lives. December opens our season with Shannon Bramer's The Hungriest Woman in the Worldwhere we follow Aimee on a hunt to engage some dusty, buried part of herself by going to see a play about a performing octopus. In February, come see Augusto Bitter's CHICHO as part of Theatre Passe Muraille's BUZZ series, where we witness the adventures of an ashamed-queer-Catholic-man-boy from Venezuela attempting to feel beautiful despite his warring identity politics. We'll close out our season with Maggie and Amelia of Shadow Girls struggling to build a healthy adult romance despite secretly harboured guilt, grudges and shame. Come witness our diverse set of characters wrestle with their demons, and maybe you'll even see your own private truths reflected on stage.
