Unflinchingly they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones). Today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room. Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed: a play with songs from 2013 Olivier Award nominated Caroline Horton (You’re Not Like Other Girls Chrissy).

Universal theatre without words, Théâtre de l'Oeil returns to Calgary with a beautiful play that has toured the world over.
