The YOU Show - The Runaway
Saturday, January 19th, 2013
2pm + 8pm
The Runaway is a show about love, loss, acceptance, and extra terrestrials. Sam runs away from home to live in the forest in order to convince passersby to help her save the world from an alien abduction on the ten year anniversary of her sisterís death. A supposed stranger aims to help Samís campaign, but this stranger may be more than she appears to be. Through narration, physical storytelling, audience inclusion, and ukulele duets, Samís story takes us on a journey from crazed activism to a place of real heart. This show is a bittersweet slice of life with a dash of humour and a pinch of song. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
The Runaway was originally created and produced as a 10 minute playlet for Theatre SKAMís Bike Ride 2012 and it was selected to remount on Oct 20th as a part of Capital Arts Council event at Victoria City Hall.
