OUR PLACENovember 16 – December 3
In Theatre Passe Muraille’s Mainspace Theatre, November 16 – December 3
Theatre Passe Muraille partners with Cahoots Theatre to co-produce the World Premiere of OUR PLACE by Kanika Ambrose, with direction by Sabryn Rock. Ambrose’s drama takes us to Jerk Pork Castle in Scarborough— “if you don’t know about it, you better be about it and ask about it!”— where newcomers Andrea and Niesha work in exchange for cash under the table. As the two scrape out a life in Canada, they must also navigate their status as undocumented workers. This funny, keenly observant script unveils the lives of these undocumented Caribbean workers who go to desperate lengths to get Canadian citizenship — a moving, timely story of those rendered invisible in a ‘welcoming’ Canada.
