Falling: A Wake

Falling: A Wake

A presentation of Chemainus Theatre Festival

Written by Gary Kirkham
Directed by Mark DuMez

One starry night the body of a young man, still strapped into his airplane seat, falls from the sky into the yard of Harold and Elsie’s farm. As the night unfolds, their mysterious guest effects a profound transformation in his hosts.

Falling: A Wake is a haunting and surprisingly funny play about love, loss, and the redemptive power of letting go.

Talk Amongst Yourselves...

We hope that Falling: A Wake sparked a bunch of new thoughts and maybe even brought up some questions for you. We don't want the conversation to end in the lobby. We want you to keep talking; in the car, in the coffee shop, and around the kitchen table. So here are some questions to help guide your discussions (PDF). Get talking!
