FROM ALASKA

By Sébastien Harrisson
Translated by Leanna Brodie
Directed by Diane Brown
Produced by Ruby Slippers Theatre

April 16 - 25, 2020 • MainStage
Tickets from $29

Canadian Drama
Two heartbroken souls healed by an unlikely connection

A troubled teenager escaping from the world breaks into the house of an elderly woman. Time passes with the unpredictable rhythms of grief as the seemingly mismatched pair share their feelings of love and loss.

Moving effortlessly between street-smart humour and lyrical elegance, From Alaska explores the intense connection between young and old; the limits of language; and the ways in which we come to both change and mirror the ones we love. 

Audience considerations: Profanity and mature subject matter. Recommended age: 13+

Single tickets from $29
