Event Details

Pacific Theatre, in collaboration with Eastside Story Guild, presents the world premiere of Child-ish.

Adults speak children’s exact words about love, life, and the big questions in this fun, fresh, and joyous new work by celebrated Canadian playwright Sunny Drake. Drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart and brutally honest kids and youth from the local community, Child-ish offers insights on everything from the climate crisis to how long it takes to build a spaceship and from mental health to unicorns. These unflinching conversations provide a grown-up audience with surprising and hilarious insights into the world and our place in it.

“We need joy mid-winter,” says Pacific Theatre’s Artistic Director, Kaitlin Williams. “And what better way to be reminded of life’s beauty and fun than to spend some time with children’s thoughts and words?! This artistic experiment has been a playful intergenerational project and we cannot wait to share it with our audience.”
