ABOUT

Devised by Véronique Bossé and Jeremy Segal with Joseph Browne

 

When the man’s father passed away, he left the man a box with his name on it. For ten years, the box sat in the man’s basement, unopened. One summer, he decides to open the box at his family cottage on an isolated island in the middle of a deep, dark lake. On his way there, a wave hits his boat, and the box is thrown overboard. It sinks down to the very bottom of the lake.

The man’s three attempts to recover the box take him on a magical journey below the waves — but when he finally brings the box back to the surface, will he be ready to open it?

Through a combination of traditional and multimedia storytelling, Crossing the Ocean invites its audience to dive into the depths of their own hearts, exploring the flooded caverns of loss and the courage it takes to remember what is so easily forgotten. Crossing the Ocean asks the question, “What will you remember when you grow up, and how?”

Press

“P@ndora is unlike almost any show I’ve seen … the show is barefaced and unapologetic in its language and themes. Yet it’s also poetic, suggestive and nuanced, a clever variation on the Greek myth of Pandora and her monster-filled box.”
Now Magazine

“Berthiaume’s script is remarkable in raising many important issues in our attitude towards cyberspace through its open-ended nature and allegorical features. I always say that expression over exposition is the way to go in a visual medium, and P@ndora as a whole effortlessly delivers on that front.”
The Theatre Reader

“The text is laced with metaphor, the staging highly stylized and the context surreal. Such a combination could have spelled disaster in less capable hands. But (the) world premiere of P@ndora, a Youtheatre play about a teenage girl’s troubling encounter with online pornography, was an unmitigated success.”
The Gazette

“P@ndora is Unflinching, Vital and Important Theatre for Young Audiences”
Mooney on Theatre
