Please come and be part of our audience – we make plays for you.
All performances of The Election include integrated audio description with a live vocal score, and are accessible for blind audiences and those with low vision.
Just as Canadians are about to take another swing at the ballot box, this funny and provocative play explores our political process and how we belong within it, and asks: Do we have a voice and does that voice count?
