ABOUT THE SHOWS:

When It Rains by Rick Gaudio:

When It Rains is a play set in the Café Liberté, an off-grid coffee shop run its proprietor, Fanchon Laliberté, on a rainy night when her regular customers take refuge from the storm, and the arrival of a stranger brings secrets and emotions flooding to the surface

Limbo by Sepidar Yeganeh Farid

Imagine leaving behind everything you know and the place you call home only to find yourself somewhere you don’t exist on paper. Limbo tells the intertwined stories of refugees from different countries who land in Turkey with the goal of travelling to a safe space beyond these borders. We hear of tales recounting their efforts to leave – legally and illegally, and challenges they face day in and day out. At the centre of it all, we follow the story of a family who has been stuck there longer than they ever imagined, will they get out or will they stay suspended in limbo forever?

Online ticket sales close on June 11 at 7pm. If you have trouble buying tickets, it can also be purchased at the door.
