Three friends. Two high schools. One lunch hour.
Roseneath Theatre + Buddies in Bad Times
A group of students trace back the roots of trauma after an act of homophobic violence tears a school community apart. Written during the rise to prominence of Gay Straight Alliances, Outside looks at issues of depression, violence, bullying, and suicide from the perspective of the young people who deal with it every day. Created for young audiences and seen by over 30,000 high school students across Ontario, this production is a rare opportunity for the general public to see a powerful and moving piece of theatre.
Nominated for two Dora Mavor Moore Awards
