Company website

Avec humour et grâce, trois familles s’aheurtent à l'inévitabilité de la mort et à la difficulté d'exprimer tout ce qu'ils souhaiteraient se dire. Ancrée dans un hospice pastoral, cette pièce de théâtre poignante examine non seulement les questions de mort et de la perte d'un proche, mais aussi celle d'amour, d’identité, et de la place de chaque personne dans ce monde. Même si cette pièce discute la mort et le sentiment de faire face à une mort imminente, elle célèbre aussi la joie de vivre.

With humour and grace, three families struggle with the inevitability of death and their inability to express everything they want to. Set in a pastoral hospice, this poignant play examines questions not only of death and loss, but also of love, identity, and each person's place in the world. Although the play’s subject deals with death and what it feels like to face impending death, it also celebrates the joy of living.

The Shadow Box features an ethnically-diverse ensemble of local talents, including Teneisha Collins, Genti Bejko, Susan Corbett, Anthony Schuller, Sofian Lahyanssa, Max Mehran, Alexandra Valassis, Helena Levitt, and Nadine Cayer.

Directed by Dale Hayes
