Welcome cake and eggshells!

Five apartment neighbours are preparing a party to welcome a refugee family: cake, balloons, poems and good intentions. But chaos is waiting in the wings, and things are about to go terribly wrong. What is this elephant in the room?

With bracing humour, incisive language and an inclusive cast (including a charismatic actor with an intellectual disability), theatre company Joe Jack and John forces us to turn out the pockets of our identity to discover the prejudices and crumbs of intolerance embedded within. Joyful, caustic, stunning!

1 performance only! 

Performed in French with some passages in English and QSL (Quebec Sign Language)

Duration

Performance is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission.
