|The Team penned by Hamilton playwright Michael Kras, winner of the prestigious Herman Voaden National Playwriting Prize and nominated for the 2018 Tom Hendry TYA Award.
Bobbie just returned to school after dealing with the suicide of her brother Ben, a former basketball superstar. To process her grief, she joins the senior girls basketball team as they prepare for championships.
The Team is a rapid-fire, heart-squeezing, fiercely funny portrait of of five teenagers in their senior year of high-school, facing the crushing weights of expectation, grief, fear, and identity as they stand on the precipice of their uncertain futures.
|Written to be relevant, accessible, and compassionate, the play wrestles with the often homophobic jock culture and cyberbullying found in high schools. With performances in both St. Catharines’ FirstOntario Performing Art Centre and Hamilton’s Theatre Aquarius, the cast and representatives from the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) and Pride Niagara will offer frank discussion after select shows to help the audience process the real life issues shown on stage.
One of ECT’s most ambitious productions to date, this award winning new play features an incredible team of artists from the Hamilton and Niagara regions, ushering in a cast of five young actors.
