How do we deal with fear and pain?

CUT explores how a quartet of characters embark on very different journeys in response to this question.

One is afraid of everything, one is hurting herself, one has been hurt, and one thinks he has all the answers. Whether it be via humour, escape, or direct confrontation, these characters live explosive truths and revelations about love, tenderness, and why it’s best not to run away.

A difficult but affirmative experience.

The four characters are of varying ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, allowing us to continue to explore as a company the richness of contemporary Canadian life, and the challenges presented to immigrants in adapting to a new country.

The text deals with issues of mental illness, self-cutting, paranoia and megalomania, and how all of these tendencies are warped and amplified by contemporary media.

Brock Congress 2014

  • A vintage cabaret with urban spice. A perfect blend of talents from the Niagara Region. A taste of song, theatre, dance, circus and, of course, wine! It was sexy, raunchy, scandalous and every bit of fun to the last sip.
