A world premiere!
Willie is a 72-year old Tsimshian man who has become cut off from his culture, and the world. Viv is a raging granny who’s determined to make her golden years count. When Viv’s teenage granddaughter Mads gets a job shopping for Willie, their lives intersect in ways that change all three, in a moving and often mischievously funny new play about our need for human connection, at whatever age.
