Both a love letter and an uncompromising critique of the city of Moncton, OVERLAP is author Céleste Godinʼs first full-length play. Created in a language that is at once personal, dense with insight, and bursting with humanity.
Staged as a tragic chorus, passionately performed in Chiac (with English surtitles) by five emerging actors, OVERLAP equally portrays the city as unsympathetic foe and enlightening muse. Through the contorted and tense bodies found on stage, our region’s nobility is revealed alongside its difficulties. The friction of our overlapping lives ignites an incandescent spark.
In 2019, OVERLAP opened with a two-week sold-out run, including shows at Fredericton’s NotaBle Acts Festival. They are back on tour in 2022 to pick up where they left off, and breathe new momentum into the piece.
