"Deliver Us Not"

by Greg Gamble and Lee Howard

directed by Bea Quarrie


Deliver Us Not, or otherwise titled Birth, Where is Thy Sting is a hilarious romp with three angst-riddled fetuses coming to terms with their impending due date in a cramped womb. They represent a trio of philosophies. The first fetus is an atheist who is convinced that "you are conceived, you live, you're born and that's it! There is nothing after birth!". The second fetus sees his time in the womb as a cosmic deception and believes that once he passes through the birth canal he will be at one with the Universe, free of all pain and fear. The last fetus takes a wait and see approach to the next world. Deliver Us Not juggles all this with impudent wit and physical dexterity.

Essay Authour
Hannah Moscovitch


by Hannah Moscovitch

directed by Bea Quarrie


Written in 2008 by Hannah Moscovitch, Canada's hottest young playwright, Essay ventures into the highly charged realm of gender politics. When a teaching assistant at a university rejects his female student's essay proposal, he finds himself locked in a conflict of language, sex and power. This play explores some highly charged topical subjects in a clever and unexpected way, leaving one thinking about human emancipation.
