Watch Mairy Beam’s provocative and enlightening play What Difference Does it Make? available now on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQU6WT6Igs8 and join us for a Play Discussion moderated by our own Rev Lara Cowtan on Saturday June 12 at 7:00 pm. ucv.im/gsa
What Difference Does It Make? Minutes before Carmelle’s best friend arrives for a visit from Toronto, Lucy comes out as non-binary. A day later they’re all trapped together isolating from Covid 19. In this hotbed of needs and limitations the characters play out their destinies against the backdrop of a city in virtual lockdown. A sensitive and illuminating portrayal of a person in transition, a partner struggling to adjust and a broken-hearted houseguest inadvertently making things worse.
From the audience:
- “Up until I saw this play I didn’t get how significant and important and fundamental the journey to non-binary is.”
- “captivating, touching, challenging, humorous, sad and informative”
- “this play is a gem”
- “true and raw”
- “I have some thinking to do . . . “
What Difference Does It Make? was originally produced by Toronto’s Haven Theatre, in February 2021.
This event is coordinated by UCV’s Genders and Sexualities Alliance as part of UCV’s recertification as a Welcoming Congregation.
