World Premiere by an Award Winning Playwright! Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to experience exciting new work by the top Canadian talent.
In the comedic drama by 25-year-old Hamilton playwright Michael Kras, the protagonist Bobbie just returned to school after dealing with an unthinkable tragedy, the suicide of her brother; a former basketball superstar whose life was turned upside down when he was outed as gay. To process her grief, Bobbie joins the senior girls basketball team as they prepare for a live-or-die battle to championships. The crushing weight of expectation, grief, fear, and identity looms as each player faces their uncertain futures.
In a partnership between the Essential Collective Theatre and Theatre Aquarius, this world premiere production of The Team will be performed both in St. Catharines and Hamilton.
