Wajdi Mouawad's Tideline opens the season
The cast and crew of Tideline opened our season last Friday and shared this moving story created by an important Canadian voice, Wajdi Mouawad. Exploring themes of loss, identity, place, forgotten youth and what it is to maintain hope against overwhelming destruction, Tideline is an epic fable for our times.
