Ralph + Lina

Produced by Ahuri Theatre
In Association with The Theatre Centre

After garnering 4 Dora nominations (including Outstanding Production, New Play, Ensemble and Female Performance) and a sold out tour of Ontario, Ralph + Lina makes its triumphant return to The Theatre Centre for one week only!

The award winning creative team of Michele Smith and real life husband and wife Dan Watson and Christina Serra bring their rough and tumble romance following the struggles of two Italian lovers in the face of war, immigration and old age. Based on the true story of Serra’s grandparents, this passionate acrobatic comedy radically reinvents the modern melodrama.

“✭✭✭✭ This is physical theatre at its finest integrating movement, dance, acrobatics and relying on minimal use of dialogue.”
-Christopher Hoile, Stage Door Reviews

“✭✭✭✭…charming, funny, piercing, honest and tightly paced. It’s hard to walk away from “Ralph & Lina” with anything but a smile on your face…”
Christina Strynatka, The Examiner Review

“…adorable in the extreme, tempered by moments of poignancy…”
-J Kelly Nestruck, Globe and Mail

Additional school performances November 25-28, 2014. For school bookings and more information contact [email protected].

Ralph + Lina was originally presented as part of The Independent Creators Cooperative supported by two established companies – Why Not Theatre and Theatre Smith-Gilmour – with three physical theatre productions that inaugurated the BMO Incubator for Live Arts in The Theatre Centre’s new home.
