There’s a popular theory that says six steps connect all living things to one another. Theatre tells us that words can bridge the distances that separate us. As vehicles of emotions and thoughts, no matter how brutal, disjointed or oddball, they communicate our vision of the world ; and bring us closer to each other. Five young authors have set out to “bridge the gaps” in this sixth instalment of Les Zinspirés. They have honed their stories through workshops with experienced playwrights and their words will once again help bridge generations as their tales reveal the universality and agelessness of our desires, our griefs and our joys.
