Acha Bacha
January 30 - February 18

“Sometimes love is not enough.”


Wuchen

Theatre Passe Muraille + Buddies in Bad Times

For years, Zaya has balanced his relationship with religion and his queer identity; but as secrets from the past reveal themselves, and crisis strikes his family, he is torn between loyalties, culture, and time. Acha Bacha boldly explores the intersections between queerness, gender identity, and Islamic culture in the Pakistani diaspora. It is a show about the way we love, the way we are loved, and how sometimes love is not enough.

Acha Bacha is being produced in partnership with Theatre Passe Muraille as part of a new initiative between our two companies to share resources and introduce our audiences to the work being done on other stages in Toronto. This show is paired with Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools, a new play by Evalyn Parry and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory mapping the connections between the Canadian North and South, which will premiere on Buddies stage in October 2017.
