Hunter Stowe, a gifted Aboriginal palliative care worker more comfortable with death than life, somehow connects with Jake Montour, a dorky Aboriginal addictions counsellor struggling with anxiety disorder. It's a miracle that two prickly burn outs have found love; it's a tragedy that they've found it while gene-altering trauma masks their last hope of happiness behind anger and stories of woe. When a desperate Jake asks Hunter to breach her professional ethics, neither of them can predict the events leading to words that change them, right down to cell level: mask's off.

An innovative, thought-provoking design by internationally acclaimed theatre artist Andy Moro allows the audience to see cells change during the emergence of love, brains altering during traumatic events and the hidden thoughts of characters with everything to hide. A unique, moving script by playwright/social worker Jeff D'Hondt dramatizes a professional world rarely seen on stage. Most importantly, the design and script highlight wrenching performances by Cole Alvis and Madison Walsh and the intense, moving stage direction of emerging theatre creator, Ali Joy Richardson.

Have you wondered how screwed a social worker can get? Or suffered a heart break so painful that it felt like it changed your DNA? A False Face removes the masks hiding the stories of our deepest scars, stories that change us -- all the down way to cell level.

Theatre director and playwright Yael Farber is one of the major voices of contemporary South Africa. Over the last decade she’s earned a global reputation for her devastating portraits of human nature. Her Mies Julie was the unqualified favourite of the prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe at its international premiere in 2012, and since then it has become one of the most sought-after touring productions in the world. Her story about the legacy of injustice in a post-traumatic society is an unforgettable performance. It’s “a dream come true … A benchmark of excellence” ( The Telegraph).

Eighteen years after the end of apartheid, the white daughter of a landowner and the black son of her father’s servant wage love and war in the kitchen of a desolated South African farmstead. The tensions and traumas of contemporary South Africa are lived before your eyes. Through Farber’s vision, August Strindberg’s classic story of class and gender in conflict comes to startling new life.

Vitals
Written By: Rosamund Small
 
Directed by: Mitchell Cushman

Performed by: Katherine Cullen

Anna’s daily routine is life, death, bureaucracy.  Every call she receives is an emergency.  How much trouble is our city in?  

Vitals   is Outside the March's latest site-specific   experience, presenting   the story of Anna, a Toronto paramedic. Based on real interviews conducted with local EMS workers,  Vitals   weaves together a canvas of affecting, poignant and disturbing emergency stories and explores their impact on the responder to these calls  ; a woman whose career is as defined by infuriating bureaucracy as it is by an endless torrent of split-second life-or-death decisions.

Cold Comfort tells the story of Kevin Toner, a bricklayer living in a self-imposed exile in England, who returns to Belfast after a 15 year absence. He has a bone to pick, and he is determined to have a conversation with his father that will leave no stone unturned. In fact, this is going to be the first meaningful conversation they will have ever had together.

There's only one problem. His father is dead.

And lying in a coffin in the front room.

A Room. A Dead body. Nowhere to Hide.

"David Mackett is absolutely riveting as the drunken Kevin Toner", NNNN (NOW Magazine)
