From Press Release
Aren’t we all Desperately Seeking Something? Desperately Seeking Something takes a darkly comedic look at what it means to be a spiritual person in a secular society. Can Toronto’s long-established religious institutions fit into our modern city? In Borderline Theatre’s inaugural production, playwright Nellwyn Lampert and director Darwin Lyons have teamed up to figure out what kind of relationship exists between God and Toronto’s twenty- somethings.
Set and performed in the heart of the Annex at Trinity St Paul’s United Church, Desperately Seeking Something challenges its audience to experience the grandeur of ecclesiastic architecture. Architecture that has become little more than a backdrop in daily downtown living. Do our city’s monuments still have the power to unite us? And if they don’t, what will bring our community together?
Don’t miss the chance to see this immersive site-specific play. It’s a theatrical production that breaks convention to put you right in the heart of the action!
