Therac-8x8-final

Pettle’s sense of humour and his unflinching honesty puts us on the edge where comedy and tragedy fuse in a dance like fire… One of the most powerful, most liberating experience of live theatre I’ve lived through.” – Halifax Chronicle-Herald

Alan and Moira are young, in love, and facing death. Each with their own story, their own sickness and their own fears, they meet in the corridors of the Princess Margret Hospital. A chance meeting starts a kindred friendship where they explore the limits of their mortality. This is a play about two young people whose lives have been interrupted by disease that NOW Magazine calls “Edgy and moving… filled with humour and tenderness.”

Admission is free. This show contains mature subject matter.
