Theater Projects Manitoba, together with the West End Cultural Centre presents Ghost River Theatre’s daring new adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic sci-fi short story Tomorrow’s Child as a one-of-kind sightless theatre experience October 25-November 5at the West End Cultural Centre.
Audience members are blindfolded and individually guided into the performance space. The story surrounds them through a thrilling 10-channel sonic landscape created by long-term Ghost River collaborator Matthew Waddell with the latest in sound technology.
The auditory feast introduces listeners to Peter and Polly Horn-new parents in the imagined retro-future of 1988 who must confront the realities of their newborn son, who has been born into another dimension. Will they accept the divide between parent and child? Or find another solution?
The story will charm lovers of science fiction, new parents and especially individuals with lived experience of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are specifically excited to welcome members of the Deaf and hard of hearing communities, and blind or visually impaired audience members by offering complimentary companion tickets. Please contact the Theatre Projects office so we can help you with your accessibility needs.
