Play Notes

× Adapted from Ray Bradbury’s short story by Eric Rose, Matthew Waddell and David van Belle Ghost River Theatre, Calgary

Blending sound art, theatre, and science fiction, Tomorrow’s Child invites audiences into the realm of internal spectacle. This is a one-of-a-kind sensory experience where audience members will be blindfolded and individually guided into swivel chairs, the story unfolding in the sonic landscape that surrounds them.

Brand new parents, Polly and Peter, in the imagined retro-future of 1988, confront the reality that their child has been born into another dimension. Will they accept the interstellar divide between parent and child? Or is there another spacetime solution?

A production for audience members across the sensory spectrum, including members of the deaf and hard of hearing communities, blind or visually impaired patrons, and those with mobility concerns. Please contact the box office for help with any accessibility needs.

“…your ears receive the audio equivalent of a five star dinner.” Calgary Herald

Based on the short story “Tomorrow Child” by Ray Bradbury, originally published as “The Shape of Things” © 1947; renewed 1975 by Ray Bradbury. Performed by permission of Don Congdon Associates, Inc.
