The Story of Mr. Wright

When: Oct. 23-28 2012

2b theatre’s newest show, The Story of Mr. Wright, examines the stories that we tell ourselves and the power they have in constructing our reality. An ensemble of actors from Saskatchewan interweave truths, one surrounding a medical miracle from the early 1950s and some surrounding their own stories of the power the mind has over the body. The performances are often heartbreaking, the staging is unique and compelling and the stories are utterly fascinating. Yet, as Christian Barry and Anthony Black layer these truths it becomes clearer that the story we are being told is also a construction and we begin to question whether we have been led blindly to believe in a fabrication and what impact that has on the power of the story. Can cancer be cured with the mind or do we just want to believe it to be so? -Amanda Campbell

Price: $15-$25
