Awkward and Embarrassing Conversations is part performance and part participatory workshop. Working with the idea of nurturance, it invites self-identified groups (social, work-related, political, recreational) to ask questions and speak about subjects that normally feel too risky to voice publicly.


Performed and facilitated by Sarah Garton Stanley and Marcus Youssef • Directed by Chelsea Haberlin • Projection Design by Cande Andrade • Prop Design by Shizuka Kai • Produced by Neworld Theatre. Development support by Farnham Maltings and Volcano Theatre. Additional support from the British Columbia Government and Service Employees’ Union.
