The Anniversary: A Play
Choice, identity and the nature of connection collide in The Anniversary, a dramatic exploration of the intimate role of science and technology in our lives.
Ottawa lawyer Evelyn Carlyle married the perfect man and created her ideal family. But when her three adult children return home to celebrate their parents’ 30th anniversary, her creation
starts to look like a failed lab experiment. How do science and technology shape our deepest familial relationships in ways we don’t even recognize?
An alt-present family drama that gets at the ancient roots of what it is to be human—or not.
Organized by: CSPC, ISSP, Faculty of Arts and Department of Theatre, University of Ottawa
