Quebec premiere

Social Studies

By Tricia Cooper
Directed by Paul Van Dyck

The bumpy road to good intentions.
Hilarious and irreverent.

A New Age single mother takes in a boarder, a lost boy of Sudan, just as her adult daughter returns home to cocoon after a failed marriage. Her other daughter, a teenager, decides to chronicle the recent immigrant’s story as a class project and in the course of learning about his incredible ordeal, develops a schoolgirl crush. Cultural differences and thwarted expectations make this a charming and stingingly truthful story of four people trying to do the right thing.

Centaur Theatre presents the Quebec English-language premiere of Tricia Cooper’s, Social Studies, featuring an intimate four-member cast directed by triple threat playwright, actor and director, Paul Van Dyck.

Inspired by true events in her own family, Winnipeg actor, comedian and playwright, Tricia Cooper, deftly employs humour to examine the social dynamics of clashing cultures under one family’s roof.
