The Vancouver Premiere of ‘Scorched’

The Vancouver Premiere of Scorched

I am so excited to be performing in this very exciting production!

Theatre Inconnu in association with ITSAZOO productions present SCORCHED by Wajdi Mouawad,     translation by Linda Gaboriau, January 19 – 31 at the Waterfront Theatre in Vancouver.

This 2007 Dora Award winning play explores themes growing out of the immigrant / refugee   experience. It has proven itself one of the most powerfully engaging dramatic works to be produced in this country during the past three years. Civil war in the Middle East forms the backdrop for much of the play’s action as Mouawad explores with profound insight the concepts of love, loyalty, and betrayal.

The plot revolves around a brother and sister’s quest to unearth the history – and mystery – of their deceased immigrant mother. As their journey takes them to the Middle East, they enter into a process of coming to terms with their own sense of loss and emptiness, while learning to understand the legacy of suffering left in the wake of conflict.

“A remarkable achievement. Anyone who cares about good theatre should not miss it.” – CBC

“A challenging and significant work… expertly interpreted by a theatre company who doesn’t shy away from accepting said challenges.” – Monday Magazine, Victoria BC
