An NAC English Theatre production
Curated by Black Theatre Workshop
Initially written and performed by Walter Borden in 1986, and presented as Tightrope Time Ain’t Nuthin’ More Than Some Itty Bitty Madness Between Your Twilight & Your Dawn, the work was one of the first Canadian plays to explore homosexuality from a Black perspective.
Borden originally played 14 characters, each of whom was crucial in reflecting his philosophy on the journey of life. Now, through the voices of 10 characters, Borden delivers an invigorating autobiographical solo performance.
The Last Epistle of Tightrope Time is a profound opportunity to witness a legendary Black Canadian artist in his element and offers audiences an experience in witnessing the resiliency of the human spirit.
