The quirky comedy that’s taking the world by storm comes to English-speaking Canada.
This is the tale of Jonah, Sophie, and a fox called Scruffilitis. It’s a love story. A dysfunctional, voyeuristic and darkly funny story, but a love story all the same. The lives of two shy individuals virtually collide and a charming, delicate and darkly funny story unfolds before your eyes.
From Edinburgh to India by way of Mexico, Australia, Italy, Turkey and the USA—and a French-language staging in Montreal—Blink is an international sensation. Plosive Productions is thrilled to present Canada’s English-language première right here in Ottawa.
