THE ONES WE LEAVE BEHIND
Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre (Vancouver)
By Loretta Seto. Directed by John Cooper.
OCT 24 – NOV 03, 2018 | Historic Theatre
An investigator for the Public Trustee, Abby Chung is assigned her first case: to find the next-of-kin for an elderly woman named Beatrice, who has died without any family or friends to claim her. As Abby uncovers more details of Beatrice’s lonely life, she is confronted by her own demons and is forced to face the mystery of her own life—the truth about her own father who walked out on her and her mother years ago. Exploring themes of isolation and abandonment, The Ones We Leave Behind poses the question, are the greatest walls the ones we build within ourselves?
From the writer of the smash-hit Dirty Old Woman, comes a new play about the redemptive power of human connection.
