Beschreibungen

Growing up, Nancy believed in magic despite a hand-me-down life in a small town. So it’s no wonder the buzzing excitement of Toronto and its allure of freedom was a likely choice for her new home, the place she finds herself years later selling her body for drugs. Nancy is further from freedom than ever under the wings of Sikes, a drug dealer and pimp. When she meets Oliver, a seventeen-year-old who lands at Sikes’s feet after a life of foster care and shelters, the two find unlikely solace in each other. As text messages are exchanged by the instant, and truths are revealed, Nancy and Oliver form an unbreakable bond in order to write a new story together.
A fresh collaboration between Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman and Joseph Jomo Pierre, and in a style that’s part Dickens, part Drake, Twisted samples from Oliver Twist to create a vivid, urban story about disenfranchised youth in Toronto.
Joseph Jomo Pierre was born in Trinidad and raised in Scarborough, Canada, where he completed a BFA in acting at York University. He is the author of Shakespeare’s Nigga, a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, as well as BeatDown: Three Plays, which includes Born Ready, BeatDown, and Pusha-Man. He lives in Toronto.
