Theatre Awakening is a project-based
theatre company dedicated to creating
live performance that awakens the mind.
Our aim is to engage audiences with
Canadian and international plays that
challenge individuals to expand their
horizons and look at the world from a
multitude of perspectives.
Founded in 2008 by Andrew Lamb and
Robert Watson, Theatre Awakening’s
inaugural production was In Darfur,
written by New York playwright and
journalist Winter Miller. Staged as part of
the Summerworks Theatre Festival,
In Darfur received wide acclaim for its
bold portrayal of based-on-real-life
events concerning the humanitarian
crisis and genocide in Sudan.
Going forward, Theatre Awakening plans
to continue in its development of work
that dares its audience to think, question,
and reflect upon preconceived notions
about the world around us. We look
forward to having you join us as we
continue on this exciting journey.
