Kate and Sam are best friends, but there’s a tension building in their relationship. When Kate’s sister falls victim to an act of violence, Kate is determined to bring the perpetrator to justice. But her actions have strange consequences, and the girls are left to ask, “What is the cost of retribution? Are any of us truly worthy of forgiveness?”

The Kissing Game is an urban fantasy that explores love, betrayal, friendship, and identity.

 

Crossing the Ocean (Ages 6-12)

Devised by Michel Lefebvre, Jeremy Segal & Martin Sirois

At le Théâtre Rouge du Conservatoire (4750 Henri Julien) March 11-15, 2019

Integrating new media and more primitive technologies, this new work is sure to inspire a sense of wonder at the power of human connection.

Staged in the round, Youtheatre’s Artistic Director Michel Lefebvre, previously seen in Simon & the Egg, invites audiences to consider how we engage with one another in the world today.

Crossing the Ocean asks the question: are we communicating more but connecting less?
