Show Up

For many years we were told, in no uncertain terms, not to get together. To stay home. At Neworld, we spent that time preparing the earth, planting seeds, and supporting them as they grew. This year, we’re inviting you to not stay home but to Show Up.

Neworld Theattre creates, produces, and tours new plays, performance events and digital works. Our motto is ‘plays well with others’. Collaboration and working across perceptions of difference are central to our ethics and the way we work. Our programming responds to the creative interests of Neworld’s core artists and opportunities that emerge in relation to other artists and organizations.

Fat joke by cheyenne rouleau 

April 25 – May 5, 2024

Directed by Chelsea Haberlin

A mixture of stand-up comedy, storytelling, and fact-blasting, Fat Joke puts fatphobia under the spotlight. Drawing upon personal experience and research, comedian, actor, and writer Cheyenne Rouleau dissects this often-untalked-about topic with eviscerating wit.

This one-person show invites us to confront assumptions. It’s all the stuff people don’t feel comfortable talking about turned into a comedy show!

A Neworld Theatre production, co-presented with The Cultch.
