BACK IN TORONTO BY POPULAR DEMAND

Following the success of 2013's Needles & Opium, Canadian Stage brings international stage sensation Robert Lepage back to Toronto with 887: an intimate solo spectacle that mesmerized audiences at Panamania 2015. Beginning with his childhood growing up in 1960s Quebec City, Lepage plunges us into the depths of his past, distilling his most intimate of recollections into a multi-layered story that reveals the historical and social reality that shaped his identity. A magical foray into the world of memory by a storyteller at the top of his game.
