Event Details

Pi Theatre closes its 2023-2024 season with the Canadian premiere of Enda Walsh’s Medicine.

Medicine is a heartbreaking yet hugely energizing and thrilling journey through one man’s troubled past. It’s a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we have called ‘mentally ill.’

John lives in an institution. Every year, a couple of struggling local actors are hired to do “drama therapy” with John, re-enacting bits and pieces of his life and trauma. Chaos ensues, secrets come to light, and John grapples with the question of whether anyone is even watching.

“I am beyond excited to offer Vancouver the opportunity to experience the Canadian premiere of Enda Walsh’s extraordinary play,” says Wolfe. “Highly theatrical in its style, Medicine is thought-provoking, hilarious, and terrifying. Walsh shows us that other people can be both the poison that harms us, and the medicine we need to live in the world.”
