Somewhere between two languages, between Hull and the Glebe, is a scream. A middle finger. An amused look. A love letter. A desire. A fresh start. An invitation.

A portrait of the national capital region – seen and told by Ottawa’s emerging and established artists. At times soft and subdued, at times a little rough around the edges. It is fun, it is colourful, it is us.

Presented in collaboration with the University of Ottawa Department of Theatre.
