ON NOW IN VANCOUVER!
Adults speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world in this fresh verbatim work. Drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart and brutally honest children, a dynamite adult cast allows an adult audience to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew.

The results are surprising, hilarious and moving.

CHILD-ish is a constellation of creative works: a web series, a live theatre show and an inter-generational process.

Sunny Drake brings you the CHILD-ish web series, where adults speak children's exact words about love, life and the world. Shot at Toronto playgrounds, you can watch the 4 episodes below. We also had virtual events co-hosted by children and teenagers. The live theatre version is finally premiering in Vancouver in Feb 2024, after COVID postponed our trajectory following our sold-out work-in-progress showings at SummerWorks (Toronto) in 2019. The silver lining was getting to create this web series version! #BeMoreChildish

ON NOW IN VANCOUVER! Adults speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world in this fresh verbatim work. Drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart and brutally honest children, a dynamite adult cast allows an adult audience to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew. The results are surprising, hilarious and profound. After sold-out work-in-progress showings at the SummerWorks Festival (Canada, 2019), the production trajectory was delayed by Covid - we're thrilled to be bringing the finished show to the stage with Pacific Theatre!
