Inspired by interviews conducted with individuals in Toronto and Halifax, Other Side of the Game gives voice to Black women who support their men, their families and communities, even in the face of dire consequences. Set in Toronto, straddling modern day and the 1970s Black civil rights movement, the play is evocative and lyrical in its presentation of a population under siege. A meeting place between the urgent activism of the 1970s and today’s unapologetic Hip Hop generation, Other Side of the Game is a deft illumination of resilience and struggle amidst the simmering tensions in Black and other marginalized communities. Featuring choreography by Jasmyn Fyffe. Ticket information here.
