Imago Theatre Presents Hannah Moscovitch Play That Explores Parenthood And Privilege

Imago Theatre Presents Hannah Moscovitch Play That Explores Parenthood And PrivilegeOther People's Children is a layered exploration of parenthood, privilege and the ethics of migrant care work. From October 25-November 4 at the Centaur, Imago Theatre will present the Quebec premiere of indie sensation (The Toronto Star) Hannah Moscovitch's Other People's Children. The play will be directed by "one of Canada's leading feminist artists" (The Calgary Herald) and the Artistic Director of Imago Theatre, Micheline Chevrier.

In Other People's Children by award-winning playwright Hannah Moscovitch, three lives entangle around the care of an infant. Ilana, a razor sharp successful young lawyer, grapples with the aftermath of postpartum depression and the expectations of motherhood. Ben, a charming businessman, pushes his limits as a partner, father, and man. Sati, a daring and self-possessed engineer, mother, and migrant care worker from Sri Lanka, tests her own and others' boundaries, exposing vulnerabilities. In the concrete and glass confines of a modern minimalist "hipster" home home, all three human psyches crack, simmer, and are brought to a boiling point.

"it's one of the best plays I've read recently. The strength of its language, the complex nature of its subject matter, the power of its discourse and, especially, the characters whose humanity we viscerally recognize. These characters are painfully human and filled with contradictions." -Micheline Chevrier, Artistic Director of Imago Theatre

Other People's Children features a gifted Canadian cast with Brett Donahue as Ben, Kathleen Stavert as Ilana, and introducing Asha Vijayasingham as Sati. The award-winning creative team features: Leslie Baker (Movement Direction), Peter Cerone (Sound Design), Micheline Chevrier (Director), Amanda Goldberg (Assistant Director), Brandon Hepworth (Assistant Stage Manager), Chantal Labonté (Lighting Designer), Danielle Laurin (Stage Manager) and Diana Uribe (Set and Costume Design).
