Why Not Theatre, Koffler Centre of the Arts, and Complicité Creative Learning are bringing together mothers and daughters who were born outside of Canada (newcomers, as well as those who may have immigrated many years ago) to create and perform in Like Mother, Like Daughter – a participatory performance project whose 2016 Toronto premiere was described as “delicate, generous, inspiring, warm, funny, and in moments, heart-rending.” (Sprockets & Greasepaint)

Directed by Rose Plotek, Like Mother, Like Daughter weaves together stories from 12 pairs of mothers and daughters into a performance of unscripted conversations performed by the mothers and daughters themselves. At the end of each performance the audience is invited to join the mothers and daughters for a light meal – created by Newcomer Kitchen – to continue the conversations.

Directed by Rose Plotek
Associate Directed by Lisa Karen Cox
Original Concept by Ravi Jain, Rose Plotek, and Poppy Keeling
Co-Created by Why Not Theatre & Complicite Creative Learning
Presented & Produced by Koffler Centre of the Arts
