Firehall Arts Centre presents world premiere of C’mon Angie, in line with the #MeToo movement

The morning after a one-night stand, questions of consent lead to a highly charged confrontation. For Reed, it was a sexual fantasy played out in real time. For Angie, it was a violation. The details of their night together unravel as they struggle to unpack the truth of what happened.
This world premiere Flying Start production showcases the emerging talent of local playwright Amy Lee Lavoie. She is an award-winning playwright and a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada’s Playwriting Program.
