Between Us

What if you were in love with your own demise? Between Us explores the lives of William and Anna, a match made in heaven, or so they thought. An electric encounter between the pair sets in motion a passionate, turned heart-wrenching romance with actions and consequences that will reshape both their lives.

Handsome Alice’s latest creation explores the question “why doesn’t she leave?” Between Us is a beautifully intimate, imaginative and raw exposé of coercion. Audiences are invited to participate in discussions facilitated by Sagesse during each performance, to further the conversation and connect community with resources.

Join us for a one of a kind theatre experience, written as an act of love and resistance.

It’s 1950 in the deserts of Southern California. Evangelist Brother Cain has a booming trade; his tent revival show moves from town to town, fleecing crowds desperate for something to believe in.

Crippled

An illustration of simmple figures in black with a blue wood grain texture and "Crippled" in white letters at the top

“Crippled” – that’s what the guys in Tony’s small community of Shale Harbour, NL used to call him growing up. The name stuck. Years later, Tony finds himself on the St. John’s, NL waterfront at a crossroad. Tired of living with a disability, of being ‘the cripple’, and still grieving the death of his same sex partner three years earlier, Tony believes there’s only one way to escape a life he no longer wants to live. His mind is made up, until a stranger appears with other plans. In “Crippled”, playwright Paul David Power shares his true experiences of growing up with a physical disability and grief after loss. “Crippled” is a story about love, death, life and redemption. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will walk away with a new perspective about life and what matters.
