    Event Details

    Performing her original songs, music she was raised with, and even some tunes by the late Don Wright himself, Alyssa weaves together a tale about growing up in his musical shadow and under his silencing oppression; then eventually using the cello and the other tools she’d inherited to find her own voice, heal from the past, and turn even the most shattered bits into art.

    Double bill with NEWFIE ELECTRA
    written by and starring Allison Basha

    A darkly quirky adaptation of a classic.

    Newfie Electra is a modern-day adaptation of a classic, Electra, by Sophocles. We are in a small out-port fishing village in Newfoundland. The main character, Tanya, is grieving the death of her Fadder at the hand of her Mudder. She spends day in and day out submerged at the fish plant plotting her next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what it’s like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her Fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell.
