Before We Go

Before We Go
Shy Lil Guy
Cecilia Serafina
60 minutes

The world is ending and no one can save it. Toronto is in chaos, parties are raging, streetcars are...delayed. But this isn’t about all that. This is about ordinary people making the most of an extraordinary moment. Inspired by audience suggestions every night, their plans for a grand exit may differ, but they have one thing in common: they’re all just doing their best. Inspired by the Canadian apocalyptic indie film “Last Night," and the Netflix series "Carol & the End of the World." Before We Go asks you to pay attention to the little things like it’s the last thing you’ll ever do, because it is.

Land acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge the original caretakers and storytellers of the land we will be performing on today, as the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the The Huron-Wendat, Petun First Nations and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

This land has been home to many other nations, named and unnamed since time immemorial. We acknowledge their role as stewards of this land, past, present and future and we are grateful to be able to perform for you today on this land.

Many of the treaties between Canada and Indigenous peoples have not been upheld. While important, land acknowledgements on their own are not acts of reconciliation. We encourage you to find out more about Indigenous issues and how you can help by checking out a list of resources we've posted on our Instagram highlights @beforewegoshow. Thank you!

Audience participation details

We will use your suggestions to inspire us. At the beginning of the show, the host will ask willing members of the audience a few questions, and some of our cast may ask follow up questions. You will not be asked to leave your seat or engage physically. When you enter the theatre, you’ll be given an option to wear or hold a token that lets us know you are okay with participating. If you are not wearing the token, you WILL NOT be asked to participate in any way. Participation is NEVER mandatory, even if you chose to wear a token. You can always decline to participate at any time.
