Join us for the Canadian premiere of Medicine by Enda Walsh, June 14 – 23 at the Vancity Culture Lab!

Medicine is a dark and frequently absurdist work that shatters the boundary between cast and audience. It is a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we have called ‘mentally ill’.

John lives in an institution. Every year, a couple struggling local actors are hired to do “drama therapy” with John, reenacting bits and pieces of his life and his trauma. Chaos ensues, secrets come to light, and John grapples with the question of if anyone is even watching.
