University Players – The Stream You Step In
Thursday, November 19, 2020 to Sunday, November 22, 2020
This co-production from University Players and Outside the March is an anthology of original plays commissioned specifically for the SODA’s graduating BFA students occurring entirely over Zoom.
The Stream You Step In will be presented in two double-bills:
November 5 – 8
good white men by David Yee
A first-person POV digital deep dive into the heart of the white ally industrial complex. Three young men on their journey to allyship get derailed by a neighbour who does all the right things in all the wrong ways.
The River of Forgetfulness by Karen Hines
Four bright young artists grapple with a poisonous living situation. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”… they quickly learn is a meaningless platitude.
November 19 – 22
The Jubilant by Elena Eli Belyea
Thistle films an apology video. Blake and Alistair attend couples therapy. Natali plans to live forever. Love, loss and longing intersect in this new work written for and about the internet.
Thank You for Your Labour by Marcus Youssef
A group of white students is organizing an online music show to show solidarity with their racialized peers. For tonight’s meeting, they’ve invited the faculty’s only brown student to join them. Good intentions meet unspoken desires in this Zoom comedy about whiteness, isolation, and how hard it can be to do the right thing.
Tickets are available through the University Players online box office HERE.
