Ruby Slippers Theatre Presents: we the same

Artwork by Jessica Fortner

we the same is a play inspired by true events. In 1979 a Vietnamese family, a mother with six young children separated from their father on the sea, flee Communist Vietnam by boat, surviving pirate attacks, typhoons, shipwreck, starvation and more. The story weaves between past and the present, memory and truth, adventure and fantasy, secrets and forgiveness, vulnerability and courage; as an immigrant mother tells her Canadian-raised daughter the story for the first time. This production includes ritual dance, shadow play, live music and animation. Livestreaming Nov 3rd to 7th through the Cultch. Trigger warning: sexualized violence.
