Smart, funny, and absurd. If that sounds right up your alley, join Pi Theatre for the Canadian premiere of Medicine by multi-award-winning Irish playwright Enda Walsh (Discopigs, The Walworth Farce), on stage from June 13 – 23 at the Vancity Culture Lab!

Medicine is a heartbreaking, yet hugely energizing and thrilling journey through one man’s troubled past. It’s a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we have called ‘mentally ill’.

John lives in an institution. Every year, a couple of struggling local actors are hired to do “drama therapy” with John, re-enacting bits and pieces of his life and trauma. Chaos ensues, secrets come to light, and John grapples with the question of whether anyone is even watching.

PLEASE NOTE: Medicine contains content that may be distressing to some viewers. Please see their website if you’d like to learn more.
