Inside The Unplugging

Learn more about the Artists involved in The Unplugging with our interview series.

Playwright: Yvette Nolan
“I think the play addresses so many questions that the world is grappling with: women in the world, aging, our seemingly insatiable appetites, our dependence on technology, Indigenous knowledge.”

Director: Nina Lee Aquino
“… this production is a whole lot of full circles and homecomings for me as an artist.”

Actor: Umed Amin
“I think everyone is going to walk out of the theatre asking themselves what gives them the strength they need to keep surviving even when there’s no hope.”

Actor: Diana Belshaw
“… this is a truly beautiful play which speaks to things we all understand and sorrow for.”

Actor: Allegra Fulton
“… I always have such faith in the triumph of the glorious human spirit. We are such divine and complicated creatures.”
