On Tuesday, March 10, we will join our friends at Western Alumni for the North American premiere of Room, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue. Following the performance, we will be treated to an exclusive talk with Dr. Emma Donoghue ’13 (Western).
Room is the story of Ma and Jack. Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma has been locked inside a purpose-built room in her captor’s garden for seven years. Her five-year-old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside. The time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room. Adapted with new music and lyrics, and a cast of seven with Little Jack shadowed by narrator, Big Jack, Room explores the power of the imagination and a mother’s love.

Show starts at 7:30 p.m. with talk to follow.
Tickets will be distributed on-site at the Western Alumni welcome table starting at 6:30 p.m.
