Act of Faith

Realwheels (Vancouver)

Apr 11 – 20, 2019 | Historic Theatre [map]

Historic Theatre

What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves or those closest to us is challenged by new information? If you aren’t religious, can you believe in a miracle? Inspired in part by a true story, this new play explores the mystery of faith-based healing, and the consequences of life-changing transformation.

Join award-winning Realwheels Theatre for this multi-disciplinary premiere by one of Canada’s foremost playwrights, Janet Munsil.




In creating an opportunity to inspect our inclination to seek out differences, Munsil touches on how it’s similarities that may ultimately unite us.” — Danny Kai Mak, The Georgia Straight
