The Artist’s Children

Get Tickets

Continuing our partnership with The NTS Drama Festival – Ontario, SummerWorks is pleased to showcase The Artist’s Children by Liv Hussey. The Artist’s Children will receive a play workshop reading with professional director and actors.

From the playwright: “There are countless tales of the ones who cross over to some inexplicable place, slay the dragon and embark on their grand adventure but in every tale there comes a point that for some unknown reason the door closes and they can’t get back. For Farren, her adventure is simple. The most successful artist runs away to the forest and finds a gift, it is motherhood, it is hair full of flowers, collections of twigs and bones, mouse babies, moonlight and star hunts, anger and funny faces, flower fairies who just want to scream. All this through the eyes of the children that can only smile in one place.”

Part of the SummerWorks Lab programming – a place for exploration, experimentation, and process. In the Lab, you can experience new works in development from artists exploring new possibilities in performance.
