This unique production will also run in the same space as One Trunk Theatre’s new show Boundary Avenue*. There will be special opportunities to see both productions. Stay tuned for details on package deals.

*Boundary Avenue is a documentary-style play co-created by Liam Zarrillo, Andraea Sartison, and Caroline Wintoniw. It looks at the town of Emerson and the influx of asylum seekers who crossed into Manitoba over the past year. One Trunk Theatre is excited to share their research and to support those who lent their stories for the development of the play with the proceeds from this production.
