Sold-Out World Premiere of "Meet Me" Interactive Theatre Project
The Live Action Theatre Project, in collaboration with Teesri Duniya Theatre, would like to thank Dr. Shaheen Shariff, James McGill Professor and Project Director of iMPACTS, a SSHRC Partnership Grant house in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education at McGill University. With their invaluable support, we were able to produce a sold out run of the world premiere of "Meet Me" on the McGill Campus, September 29 to October 8, 2022.
“Meet Me” is a branching narrative, audience-interactive theatre experience exploring intimacy, consent and cancel culture in the post #MeToo era. It was written by Julia Ainsworth and Rosaruby Kagan, and directed by Rosaruby Kagan. It included media writer Stephanie Merulla and text contributions by Zeshaun Saleem. The show featured Leigh Ann Taylor, Darragh Mondoux, and Zeshaun Saleem
