Both a love letter and an uncompromising critique of the city of Moncton, OVERLAP is author Céleste Godinʼs first full-length play. Created in a language that is at once personal, dense with insight, and bursting with humanity. Staged as a tragic chorus, passionately performed in Chiac by five emerging actors, OVERLAP equally portrays the city as an unsympathetic foe and enlightening muse. Through the contorted and tense bodies found on stage, our region’s nobility is revealed alongside its difficulties. The friction of our overlapping lives ignites an incandescent spark.
The sold-out local run was met with praise and opportunities arose. International and national tours were booked. OVERLAP, like many things touched by covid, was cut short. It is with stubborn pride that Satellite Théâtre presents OVERLAP (with English subtitles) for your consideration. We are confident you too will see the value in keeping this momentum alive!
