Jabber tells the story of a 16 year old Egyptian girl whose parents transfer her to a new school when one morning some graffiti saying “All Muslims must die” is found on the school wall. At her new school she is the only person wearing a hijab. Through its use of humour, its relevance, and its creativity, Jabber has already engaged over 40,000 teens, teachers and parents in meaningful discussions on the judgments we make based on differences. Each performance comes with an optional 10 – 15 minute post-show talk back session led by the actors.

TWO IN THE COOP
Friday, April 28, 2017 at 11:00am
$5 per person
Two in the Coop is the story of Brad and Pete – two fledglings who must decide how to cope when their mother does not return to the nest as expected. Through clever banter, bickering and bravado, the playwright explores children’s fears of abandonment and death, sibling relationships and power dynamics, and the many anxieties of coming of age. Equal parts humorous and profound, the play tackles sensitive topics with ease and grace. Two in the Coop was dubbed a “touching and heartwarming piece of theatre” by The Chronicle Herald.
