Theatre of the Beat is taking its new play, #ChurchToo on tour across Canada.

Two Alberta performances:

Oct 30 - Edmonton First Mennonite
Nov 2 - Calgary First Mennonite

Both show at 7pm
Pay What You Can

Artfully depicted through a variety of scenes and relationships, #ChurchToo explores the struggle of wading into the realities of sexual assault and examines the difficulties of speaking out in a community where the topic of sex is often considered taboo. Follow an array of characters through seven vignettes, each bringing to life stories about hidden trends within our church communities. From the secret relationship of a young woman and her pastor, to discriminatory church policies, all the way to bringing forth allegations against persons in power, #ChurchToo illuminates the messy dynamics that accompany the complicated truths of power and sexual abuse.

Tickets: Pay-what-you-can at the door (suggested donation: $15/person)

Running Time: 100 minutes, no intermission
**There will be a 20 minute talkback following the performance.
