“Expert, physical comedy. Impeccable timing.” CBC
Come to the theatre for a one-woman show that is empowering, funny, and thoughtful. Blindside is the eye-opening, multi-award-winning comedy about resilience, empathy, and self-acceptance. In a feat of riveting comedy, one-eyed cancer survivor and Moth storytelling champion, Stéphanie Morin-Robert, recounts her life as a feisty seven-year-old who wields her glass-eye as a weapon. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers that she has what it takes to face the tormenting bullies at her new school and come to terms with her disability.
