The Problem with Pink

February 14-23

A co-production of Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke (Quebec) and La parenthèse-Christophe Garcia (France)

Every day is full of fun and stories for four friends who frolic on their private, pink world. But everything changes when they get terrible news from the outside: the colour pink is for girls. Suddenly, what other people think matters and this place – this pink place – no longer feels like it’s for them.

Connections: Identity & Expression, Diversity, Inclusion
