None of This Is Happening | Ellen Peterson
November 10, 2022 - November 20, 2022Free – $27
An apocalyptic fable about climate devastation, None of This Is Happening, is a timely tale for this crucial point of human history.
The play follows a trio of ex-vaudevillians who are inextricably tied together even as they goad each other to the brink. A play about mountains of garbage, unrequited longing, our inescapable interconnectedness—for better and worse—and of course: Niagara Falls. It’s the end of the world as we know it seen through the incomparable imaginative lens of one of Winnipeg’s finest playwrights.
Originally commissioned by TPM pre-pandemic, Peterson’s first draft (titled Daredevils) centered on tightrope walkers in Niagara Falls in the 19th century. But when real-life seismic shifts shook our social, geopolitical, and ecological world to its foundations, a whole new play grew out of the rubble. In None of This Is Happening Peterson has recycled the vaudevillians and daredevils of her original idea, reimagining them, in all their sharp humour and faded glory, as the central figures in a primal struggle for survival.
