Sea Sick Tour

Written and Performed by Alanna Mitchell

Produced by The Theatre Centre

…the ocean contains the switch of life. Not land, not the atmosphere. The ocean.
And that switch can be turned off…

Sea Sick, Alanna Mitchell’s critically acclaimed and Dora-nominated production about the state of the global ocean, premiered at The Theatre Centre in 2014 and has since toured around Canada (Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Victoria, Montreal…) and the world. Come and experience this powerful story in which Mitchell uses science and her own delicate wit to tell us about her journey to the bottom of the ocean, the demons she discovered there, and her hope for the future.

Mitchell is an award-winning Canadian journalist and author (New York Times, CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, Globe and Mail, and more) who writes about science and social trends specializing in investigative reporting. Sea Sick is inspired by her international bestseller and award-winning book of the same name.
