Maison Théâtre Book

On a small island overrun by property developers, two radically different strangers’ lives collide after an unexpected ecological disaster. Finding refuge within the close confines of a bunker, they confront their conflicting visions of the world in a captivating to-and-fro. Complicit in their aversion to unbridled development, they share ideals and a desire to create, once back in the world, a more just society.

Should we live or merely survive? In response to that question, Other Worlds hones in on two characters seeking to preserve their values and assert their identity, while trying to find coherence and continuity in the world around them. Both intimate and universal, the story addresses issues of friendship, well-being, belonging to a community and building a better world.

A creation and a project collaboration by Geordie Theatre, l’École Le Sommet/Summit School, Les Muses & Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal.
