Carried Away on the Crest of a Wave

Performance Dates

This U.S. premiere, directed by Helen Pafumi, explores how a singular, cataclysmic event—the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami—illustrates the interconnectedness of all things. From an escort in Thailand, to a Catholic priest in India, to a housewife in Utah. This is what happens when the events that tie us together are the same that tear us apart.

The Hub Theatre welcomes Canadian playwright David Yee. Yee is currently the Artistic Director of fu-GEN Theatre Company, Canada’s only professional Asian Canadian theatre company which he also co-founded. He is also a Dora Mavor Moore Award nominated actor and playwright.
