Company website

Avec humour et grâce, trois familles s’aheurtent à l'inévitabilité de la mort et à la difficulté d'exprimer tout ce qu'ils souhaiteraient se dire. Ancrée dans un hospice pastoral, cette pièce de théâtre poignante examine non seulement les questions de mort et de la perte d'un proche, mais aussi celle d'amour, d’identité, et de la place de chaque personne dans ce monde. Même si cette pièce discute la mort et le sentiment de faire face à une mort imminente, elle célèbre aussi la joie de vivre.

With humour and grace, three families struggle with the inevitability of death and their inability to express everything they want to. Set in a pastoral hospice, this poignant play examines questions not only of death and loss, but also of love, identity, and each person's place in the world. Although the play’s subject deals with death and what it feels like to face impending death, it also celebrates the joy of living.

The Shadow Box features an ethnically-diverse ensemble of local talents, including Teneisha Collins, Genti Bejko, Susan Corbett, Anthony Schuller, Sofian Lahyanssa, Max Mehran, Alexandra Valassis, Helena Levitt, and Nadine Cayer.

Directed by Dale Hayes

Coming Soon

Ari Shaffir is a Just for Laughs Festival favourite, with regular appearances on The Nasty Show, live recordings of his comedy podcast The Skeptic Tank, as well as past hosting duties for his long-form storytelling show This is Not Happening on Comedy Central. Now he is bringing you even more raucous laughs with another year of his storyteller series, renamed and reclaimed! Ari selflessly shares what can only be his embarrassingly true real life tales.

NYC’s roughest survival of the fittest live comedy show comes to Montreal! It's Open Mic meets a Roast as a crop of inexperienced comedy rookies take the stage for the first time in front of a large audience hoping to get laughs, while a panel of brutal comedy headliners sit in judgment, ready to ring in with some tough “advice.” It's Tell a Joke or Be a Joke as Montreal’s own go up against a panel of Comedy’s toughest critics. It’s confrontational, it’s crass, it’s raucous, and it’s an absolute blast.
