Like Mother, Like Daughter

TORONTO PREMIERE | October 26 – 30, 2016
918 Bathurst Street | Tickets: $15-$20

If you could ask your mother one question about her life, what would it be?

Koffler Centre of the Arts, Why Not Theatre and Complicite Creative Learning are bringing together mothers and daughters who were born outside of Canada (newcomer women, as well as those who may have immigrated many years ago) to create and perform in this participatory performance project.

Like Mother, Like Daughter will weave together stories from these 12 pairs of mothers and daughters into an unscripted conversation, to be performed by the mothers and daughters themselves.

At the end of each performance, the audience will be invited to join the mothers and daughters for a light meal – created by Newcomer Kitchen – to continue the conversations.

Presented by Koffler Centre of the Arts
Co-Directed by Ravi Jain (Toronto) and Rose Plotek (Montréal)
Co-created by Why Not Theatre and Complicite (UK)
