ALL MY FRIENDS ARE ANIMALS
A co-production with Axis Theatre
An all-ages romp from the city into the wild
When a bear wanders from the mountains into the city, natural boundaries are blurred and a perplexed teenager named Jo struggles to makes her way home. On her adventures, she crosses paths with coyotes, raccoons, and mice, and learns the importance of trusting her instincts. Loosely based on the real-life story of a bear that entered downtown Vancouver in the Winter of 2011, All My Friends Are Animals is about the extraordinary nature of these encounters and the primal feelings they awaken. Intended for audiences aged 10 and up, this is a playful little piece that ignites a youthful spirit and sense of delight.
