The Best Plan for Living Happily ()

Presented by

Questionmark-Exclamation Theatre and Birdtown and Swanville

Playwright: Julia Lederer
Director: Aurora Stewart de Peña




April 7th, 2016 – April 23rd, 2016


Violet’s best friend Linda is getting married. There are tea sommeliers and ribbon colourists. But Violet feels a grey hole expanding in her gut and isn’t sure what to do about it. Inspired by Plato’s Cave Allegory and a Toronto Caving Society meeting, she brushes off her bridesmaid responsibilities and ventures into a cave alone, in pursuit of concrete wisdom. But it’s hard being in a cave by yourself. Especially when someone follows you there.
