Geordie Productions presents...
Jabber - with ASL interpretation
March 25th, 7 - 8:15pm
Let’s say three actors play out a story that takes place in a high school. Let’s say one of them plays an outgoing Egyptian-born girl who wears a Hijab. Let’s say her parents made her change schools recently because of some graffiti that said, “All Muslims must die,” and that the guidance counsellor at her new school, Mr. E, is doing his best to help her fit in. Let’s say that a big part of his advice to her is to stay away from Jorah, a grade 10 guy who has challenges of his own (namely a temper that he inherited from his dad who’s in jail for beating up his mom.) But let’s say that maybe, just maybe, Fatima and Jorah start to, like, like each other…
Deaf women, tell me ... A film 100% accessible: fully signed (LSQ), fully subtitled in English, fully audible in French.
"Traditionally, hearing people are the ones doing research, writing books, and making movies about Deaf people. What kind of stories would Deaf people tell about their lives, perceptions, and experiences, if they had the chance? I am a Deaf woman, yet no one told me about the history of the Deaf. I met many Deaf women and asked them to tell me their life stories. My story. They attended the first and only school for Deaf girls in Quebec and New Brunswick, the Institute of Deaf-Mutes of Montreal, led by the Sisters of Providence, in operation between 1851 and 1975. The Deaf women of this generation know all about their history. They share a common history, a common language. They have told me their story; now they will tell you." -Marie-Andreé Boivin

ONE OF THE MOST BUZZED ABOUT NEW PLAYS IN NORTH AMERICA MAKES ITS MONTREAL PREMIERE IN THE SEGAL STUDIO!
Joshua Harmon's breakout hit asks what you choose to believe, when you're chosen.
When three cousins gather in a cramped Manhattan apartment to mourn the death of their beloved grandfather and fight over a precious family heirloom, they learn there is much more at stake than who gets what. Bursting with crisp, fast-paced dialogue, Bad Jews is an exciting exploration of faith, family and legacy that is as thought-provoking and poignant as it is viciously funny.
