THIS IS THE POINT
Ahuri Theatre & The Theatre Centre (Toronto) Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
JAN 29 – FEB 02, 2019 | Historic Theatre
A play about love, sex, and disability.
This is the Point is a joyous and unflinching portrait of four individuals whose lives have been shaped, in part, by cerebral palsy. Dan and Christina are parents searching for the best way their disabled son Bruno can share his voice. Tony is a non-verbal adult who won’t shut up. Liz is his long-time romantic partner grappling with the judgements that society makes about their love and sexuality. Through a series of staged conversations and theatrical re-enactments, these two couples draw from their personal lives to explore and debate questions of representation, the nature of companionship, and whether people of different abilities can ever connect with each other on equal terms.
“Anyone who’s feeling anxious or isolated or in need of connection can look to these four performers” — Toronto Star
