Performance Notes

× An Indigenous client suffers. Two grieving therapists refuse to leave her in pain.

Music, art, neuroscience and the revitalization of the Lenape language light three paths in a technological tearjearker.

Cassandra, a gifted neuroscientist, revives Megan from a coma with music. The procedure leaves Megan a volatile drunk capable of great violence. Unable to treat her, Cassandra turns to a highly experimental and derided technological art therapy developed by Alison, an Indigenous neuropsychologist. Alison's methods yield unexpected results, Megan does the unthinkable and life-changing wisdom emerges: pain’s often unjust; it also reminds us that we're alive.

Everything I Couldn't Tell You is presented as part of the RISER Project, a collaborative producing model by Why Not Theatre, with the generous support of the Government of Canada.

In order to create more access and opportunity for artists, Why Not Theatre is looking at new ways of producing theatre in Toronto for independent artists. The RISER Project brings together a community of senior leadership and emerging artists, to support the artistic risk that independent artists must take in order to create and innovate. The model is designed to maximize existing infrastructures by sharing resources, risk and energy to reduce the producing burden on artists. RISER senior partners for 2018 are Aluna Theatre, Buddies in Bad Times, Cahoots, Factory Theatre, fu-GEN Theatre, Modern Times, Necessary Angel, Nightwood Theatre, Obsidian Theatre, Shaw Festival, Roseneath Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille and The Theatre Centre. RISER is made possible with the generous support of the Government of Canada.

*A note on ticket prices for RISER: In order to ensure accessibility, Why Not Theatre invites you to Pay-What-You-Can-Afford. You can pick any one of four prices—$5, $20, $35, $60—whichever suits your budget. All tickets are general admission, and there are no limits on any price level.
