The theatre show

Adults speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world in this fresh verbatim play. Drawn from interviews with whip-smart and brutally honest children, a dynamite adult cast allows us to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew. The results are surprising, hilarious and moving.


The creative team is intergenerational including a team of young dramaturgs. As the work tours, local children will participate in part of the performance. Current Status: sold out work in progress showings at the SummerWorks Festival in  2019, final development workshops in 2020 (POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19). Development partners: Nightswimming, Necessary Angel, National Arts Centre via The Collaborations, Roseneath Theatre. Previous development support from: Theatre Passe Muraille. Funding: Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Mammalian Diving Reflex, Toronto Fringe, Crow’s Theatre, Studio 180. Photo: Graham Isador.
