The Other – The RISER Project

Sharon has never felt like she belonged anywhere. This feeling of alienation has been compounded by the fact that Sharon has never been in a ‘normal’ relationship. The Other is a sexy dark comedy from the companies that have brought Toronto SIA, Sudden Death and Malaria Lullaby.

About The RISER Project
In order to create more access and opportunity for artists, Why Not Theatre is looking at new ways of producing theatre in Toronto for independent artists. The RISER Project brings together a community of senior leadership and emerging artists, to support the artistic risk that independent artists must take in order to create and innovate. The model is designed to maximize existing infrastructures by sharing resources, risk and energy to reduce the producing burden on artists. The senior partners of the 2016 round of productions are Necessary Angel, Nightwood Theatre, fuGEN Theatre, Modern Times, Theatrefront and The Theatre Centre. RISER is made possible with the generous support of the Toronto Art Council’s Open Door Program and the Government of Canada.
