Kitchener: Green Light Arts presents “WE COULD BE” August 16-25

Tuesday, July 27, 2021

A group tries to save a beached whale… a climber wants to end the world… a woman swallows a microphone… a preacher struggles under the weight of it all… a man hopes to make you laugh… a woman celebrates...


Tied together by themes of hope and resilience, WE COULD BE is a cluster of playlets created specifically for this moment; a recognition of where we are -- and where we could be. 


WE COULD BE is Green Light Arts’ first live, in-person theatrical production since the pandemic began.


Witness the Kitchener Market transform into a theatrical venue for the evening! This production is FREE to the general public as a thank you to the community for coming back to the theatre.


(THIS PLAY IS SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES)
