Tusk Turns One!

After 30 some odd years of being alive, Tusk, is having his first ever birthday. Come celebrate with him and cousin, Tilly, as Tusk goes from zero to something more. Tusk Turns One! is a look at family and cycles of abuse that is equal parts birthday celebration, bruises, and apology (with dancing, violence, and cake, respectively).

Awkward Hug
A Workshop Performance

When Cory was 19-years-old, he found life pretty confusing.
Did he really lose his virginity to his girlfriend?
Who is that man that walks out of all of his plays?
How does a pet mouse represent true love?
And how does he still not know the specifics of his Mom and Dad’s disability?

Awkward Hug is a storytelling show that explores the discomfort of sifting through life’s clutter in order to move forward. Taking place in a countdown to a big move, Cory juggles with the messiness of a first relationship, the consequences of his own passivity, and the looming presence of things unsaid that hangs over his family.

Funny and heartfelt, uncomfortable and (briefly) loud, join us for the FIRST EVER workshopped performance of Awkward Hug, before an eight city cross-Canada tour.
