A Lucky Man

Is it a sin for a lucky man to feel sad all the time? Life is generally good, a roof over his head, a family who takes care of him, but Leo is still lonely in a foreign land and struggles to confront the source of his sadness.

About the Honours Performance Series

The Honours Performance Series is the product of THTRFLM 4A06: Theatre, Performance, and Society and features the work of the graduating class of the Theatre and Film Studies program. The class is the culmination of the program’s training in devised theatre creation. Students collaborate to produce live, public performances that speak to their own social concerns.

In this year of the pandemic, the students have pivoted to digital performance. We have tried to maintain the spirit of live performance and resisted the inclination to simply make short films.

Their innovative responses to the challenges of distanced creation have been extremely impressive. Each student has developed their own form and style of digital performance that aligns with the theme of their show. They have all been a great pleasure to work with and have shown great resilience and creative courage in these difficult times.

I hope you enjoy their work as much I have enjoyed working with them.
