KITT & JANE
An Interactive Survival Guide to the Near-Post-Apocalyptic Future
Two fourteen-year-old unlikely heroes hijack their school assembly to deliver a message: our society is set to collapse into chaos, and they’re here to train you to survive. “A WILD, IMPRESSIVELY-CHOREOGRAPHED ROMP featuring dance numbers, live music, and giant-scale shadow puppetry that is by turns hilarious, heart-rending and in small glimpses, beautiful. You won’t want to leave your seat.” (The Marble). A stand-alone sequel to SNAFU’s highly-acclaimed shows Little Orange Man and Interstellar Elder, this show is a poignant exploration of the world today’s youth are inheriting, and just how far they’re willing to go to fight for it.
“ABSOLUTELY GENIUS. Flawless comedic timing, dynamic physicality, and a beautiful and complex friendship.” — New Ottawa Critics
“THIS PLAY IS GOLD. AN UNPREDICTABLE ROLLER-COASTER OF AN EVENING, with whimsical humour, manic energy, and intelligence. You will not leave this show in a bad mood.” — West of West.
