In This World

By Hannah Moscovitch
Translated by Marilou Craft

March 21 - April 2, 2023 - CAM en Tournée

ABOUT

An updated version of a Youtheatre classic, coming to stage and screen.

 

An award-winning production that delivers an unflinching and incisive look at race, friendship, and class divides.

 

Bijou is from a privileged background. Neyssa is a recent Jamaican immigrant struggling to fit in. They wait together in detention after getting into a vicious fight at school.  As the girls confront each other about what happened, they realize that a deeper tragedy lies between them.

They are forced to choose between doing what they are taught and making a choice that could have lasting consequences.

Press

“In This World is relevant and unflinching.”

–  Kathryn Greenaway, The Gazette (2009) 

“Moscovitch’s intense script, directed by Youtheatre’s Michel Lefebvre, captures the characters’ raw anger and pain – the sense of abandonment, worry how parents will react, concern about peers. ” -Jon Kaplan, Now Toronto (2010)

“Hannah Moscovitch play tackles tough issues for young audiences but avoids easy answers.”

-Joff Schmidt, CBC News (2016)
