Alright: Solving the Problem of Living

Toronto: March 9 at 6:30 pm

Burdock Music Hall 

Nisha Coleman (Self-Exile, Things Drugs Taught Me) spins a yarn of nail-biting, heart-wrenching, darkly comedic adventures as she gets locked in the Madrid train station with a stray cat, is rescued by the Princess Bride's Westley while busking in Halifax, and saves a young woman from a brush with death in Montreal. Through these true-life stories, Coleman delves boldly into themes of mental illness and suicide, and attempts to “solve the problem of living” by learning to be Alright with being Alive.

Written and performed by Nisha Coleman

Dear Humans: A Letter from the Animals

An accessible, honest, and sweet way to get your little one in on the important mission of saving our planet.

The Earth is changing fast.

How bad is it? The animals gather to find out. When they realize it’s humans behind the destruction, they must decide what to do. Could they send them to another planet? Or do humans need their help? The animals write them a letter, reminding humans of nature’s gifts and how to turn things around before it’s too late.

It is so important to give children the space to express their big feelings about climate change. Dear Humans does just this—with humour, heart, and hope.
