Tideline

When you’ve grown up an ocean away from your birthplace, what do you ultimately call home? Wajdi Mouawad’s Tideline – winner of the Governor General’s Award for drama and France’s Prix Molière – is a play about the displacement of self.

After the sudden death of his father, Wilfrid is forced to confront a host of family secrets, including the foundation of his own existence. A dream-like journey through a war-torn landscape inhabited by some equally lost and peculiar survivors, Tideline is a darkly humorous fable and the first of Mouawad’s tetralogy of plays.

Date/Time: September 16 to October 1. Week One: Sept. 16–17, 8 p.m.; Week Two: Sept. 21–24, 8 p.m.; Week Three: Sept. 28–Oct. 1, 8 p.m. (Additional Oct. 1 matinee at 2 p.m.) Post-show talkbacks: Sept. 17 and 22. Pre-show artist chat: Oct. 1 at 1 p.m.

Cost: $28 ($17 seniors; $15 students).
