Featuring Stéphanie Morin-Robert

8. BLINDSIDE Stephanie Moirn-Robert (Photo_ Tristan Brand)

In a feat of riveting comedy, one-eyed storytelling champion Stéphanie Morin-Robert recounts her life as a feisty seven year old who wields her glass eye as a superpower. The one-woman play Blindside describes how a prospector’s recent diamond discovery forces his daughter, a young and sheltered cancer patient with a prosthetic eye, to change schools in the middle of Grade 3. While her family members are distracted by their luxurious new lifestyles, she struggles to find the confidence to face the tormenting bullies at her new school. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers she has what it takes to fight back and come to terms with her disability.

“Morin-Roberts’ greatest strength is that she makes you, the audience member, fall in love with her. She tells her story in an intoxicating way – bringing the audience to a crescendo of laughter, only to knock the wind out of your emotional sails and have you on the verge of tears.” – Theatre in London
Please be advised this performance contains occasional use

Pay What You Will – “Pay What You Will” is offered on select performances. Here’s how it works:

– You still need a ticket. Book your seats in advance by calling our box office at 458-8344, going online or visiting us at 686 Queen Street. If you don’t book in advance, you can still see the box office on show day to obtain a seating assignment.

– At the performance, we will provide an envelope and ask audience members to pay whatever amount they wish (based on their own individual experience) following the performance.

You decide the price of your tickets!

The objective of “Pay What You Will” is to increase access to our programs, and to encourage our patrons to take a chance on new and exciting performances.
