It's a merry-go-round of relationships at the strangest 18th birthday party ever. It’s Friday night and Elise is anxiously waiting for her guests to arrive. Caught in a complex web of conflict, loss and asexual romance, the guests keep losing each other and themselves as they make their way to the party. Meanwhile, three hired clowns try to get their act together for their signature absurd show that will change the guests’ lives forever. Webs We Weave demonstrates the challenges we all face in our relationships along the journey to fulfilling our need for acceptance, belonging and love.

Webs We Weave is written and performed by VANCOUVER YOUTH: Sophie Elder-Labrie, Emily White, Keir Peach, Lauren Preissl, Brogan Ho, Christopher Rahim, Nicholas Roe, Patrick Seid, Ryan Schmidt, Maria Mendez and Nathan Maden. In collaboration with Some Assembly theatre artists Valerie Methot, Ken Lawson, Jeremy Baxter, Chandra Lesmeister, Anna Talbot and Allen Morrison. Some Assembly Theatre Company is now in its 14th year of creating and producing youth driven plays that build awareness, promote wellness and encourage dialogue about issues facing teens with its Roundhouse Youth Theatre Action Group Project (RHYTAG). Webs We Weave will be presented free of charge for the public, with talkback sessions after each performance. Join us for a pre-show Gala Event on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2 at 6:30pm, which will include live music, an art exhibition and a silent auction.
