$12 – $15
Cory Thibert embodies his 19-year-old self as he uncovers the truth behind what sets his family apart.

In the summer of 2009, Cory Thibert was a quiet 19-year-old living in his parents’ basement. He was working as a server to pay his college tuition, spending time with his animal-loving girlfriend, and starting a theatre company with his best friend. When the Ottawa Affordable Housing Unit informs his parents that they have to move out of the only home Cory has ever known, it sets in motion a series of events that uncover the truth about what has set his family apart, and force Cory to find his voice … with a scream.

With laugh-out-loud humour and heartbreaking honesty, Awkward Hug transports us to the discomfort of navigating adulthood for the first time. Through masterful storytelling and intimate reflection, Cory explores what constitutes “normal” in our world, and how having two parents with (dis)abilities forces his family outside those margins
