Outside is the story of Daniel, a teen who triumphs over homophobic bullying, depression and suicide. At his new school he shares his story at a meeting of the Gay Straight Alliance. Meanwhile, at his old school, struggling to come to terms with what happened, his friends Krystina and Jeremy attempt to start their own GSA. Through flashbacks, we travel through Daniel’s harrowing experience with bullying that began with a taunt and a text message and eventually led to a serious physical assault. Three friends, two high schools, one lunch hour.
It’s not too late to donate to Roseneath Theatre and help us in our mission to bring thoughtful and progressive theatre to schools across Canada. Your donation will help subsidize performances in schools who might not be able to otherwise afford our fee, and will provide camp scholarships to our local community to attend our P.A.Day and week-long march-break and summer camps. Donations are eligible for a tax-receipt which comes just in time for the end of the year.
Since 1983, Roseneath Theatre has been touring high quality professional theatre for young audiences. As a not-for-profit registered charity, we rely on donations to reach approximately 100,000 children and youth each year. Your gift directly supports our touring productions and is fully tax deductible.
Since our earliest days, Roseneath has endeavoured with a high degree of success to create new theatrical works of the highest quality (as evidence, look to our over 50 Dora Award Nominations). Shows anchored in subject matter that resonates with young people, presented in a dynamic inspiring fashion and never talking down to our audience.
This is the only opportunity to see the show outside of one of our school performances. Take your family to see this award winning play this weekend!
La Maleta (The Suitcase) is the story of Roca, a ten-year-old refugee who escapes her native Colombia clutching her suitcase – inside which she believes her grandmother is hiding. Struggling to adapt to a new city, a new school and a new way of life, Roca befriends Paz, a boy with a secret who is being bullied by their classmates. Opening the suitcase leads them to embark on an adventure where Roca finds the courage, hope and strength to adapt to her new home. Incorporating both Spanish and English, this production will engage students’ imaginations and provide insight into what a new student who doesn’t speak their language might be feeling and thinking.
