Grandview Theatre Company presents

INDISPOSABLE: A Devised Theatre Exploration Into Brantford’s Opioid Epidemic

Directed by Holly B Wood

Sponsored by Hudson Restoration

With Support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation

Created in partnership and consultation with Brantford Substance Users Network, Brant Theatre Workshops, Brant County Health Unit, Brantford Public Library, Canadian Mental Health Association, Community Legal Clinic, Grand River Community Health Centre, Off-Key Productions, St. Leonard’s Community Services, & Wesley

Presented Live on Zoom in honour of International Overdose Awareness Day.

Statistics show that Brantford has one of the highest opioid overdose and hospitalization rates in Canada. In an effort to raise awareness for and to understand this local crisis, Grandview Theatre Company presents a professionally devised theatre production about Brantford’s opioid epidemic, based on recorded interviews with community members who have lived experience of substance use.

The play will premiere digitally on August 28, 29 and 31 from 7pm-8pm, live on Zoom. Each performance will be followed by an (optional) short community discussion and interactive visioning exercise centered around the question “where do we go from here?”.

More information on their website with Zoom Link coming soon http://grandviewtheatrecompany.com/indisposable.


The play is being offered by donation. Audience members can get their free digital tickets starting August 1, 2021 by visiting www.grandviewtheatrecompany.com/indisposable.
