In-person event

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 male 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 autobiographical solo performance as a distilled feast for all of the senses.

The Last Epistle of Tightrope Time is a profound opportunity to witness a legendary Black Canadian artist in his element and offers audiences a personal experience in witnessing the illumination of the resiliency of the human spirit.

Performance dates and times to be confirmed later this fall.
