Any Given Moment

A world premiere co-production with Ship's Company Theatre.

A troubled teen, a helicopter mom and a homeless man become trapped together after police lockdown the neighbourhood. Assumptions are challenged and new relationships made as three complete strangers debate the situation and the potential dangers of the outside world. In this world premiere by New Brunswick playwright Kim Parkhill, Any Given Moment presents a touching, hilarious and unexpected looking into the culture of fear and challenges our expectations of what we think we know.

Read the story behind the photo:

Our image for Any Given Moment features a photo of actor Barbara Duncan taken during rehearsals for our 1980 production of the Tennessee Williams play, The Glass Menagerie, directed by Malcolm Black. This image was the first one our design team gravitated towards, using it as part of their pitch for this season's look. We all agreed that it was the perfect choice. There was only one problem. We had to track Barbara down to get permission and all we had was a phone number. Several calls were made and each went straight to an answering machine. After a couple of weeks with no reply, and with our print deadline fast approaching, we decided to swap out the photo. We were all a little heartbroken. Then, just days before we were set to go to print, went get a message from Barbara saying, "Of course, you have my permission. I have such fond memories of work at TNB with Malcolm Black. If every show had been as rewarding as those, I would probably still be in the business". Thank you, Barbara!
