4 1/2 (ig)noble truths

Thu, Apr 25 - Sat, Apr 27

10 E Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1M9, Canada map

Let’s pretend for a second that we’re OK. What does that feel like? This show is for those times when you can’t get out of bed – when you’ve only been eating breakfast cereal for days.

‘4 1⁄2 (ig)noble truths’ is Thomas McKechnie’s deeply personal attempt to articulate his experience living with clinical depression. Initially framed as a matter-of-fact lecture, when this method falls short he uses objects, poetry, sound and action to offer 4 ½ totally useful pieces of advice for battling depression.

“It was, quite possibly, the most honest piece of theatre I saw all year.”
– Jill Harper – Intermission Magazine Toronto (Top shows of 2016).

“4 1/2 (ig)noble truths is moving, intelligent, funny, helpful and goddamn brave; you need to see it.”
– My Entertainment World
