Godly’s Divinia
Many Fingers says this play, which has been in development for several years, is based on a true story that happened in a remote northern community in Manitoba. A young Cree boy from “off reserve” falls in love with a girl from the reserve and she becomes pregnant. Fearing her father’s reaction, they give up their child for adoption. “It’s a very powerful Romeo and Juliet story.”

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed performances are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, including those with sensory concerns, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, dementia; parents with small babies; or anyone for whom the regular theatre experience can be challenging.

Small modifications are made to the production and the patron experience to help reduce anxiety. The modifications vary depending on the production, and may include: reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, reducing or eliminating strobe effects, and keeping the lights in the audience slightly brighter in case a patron needs to leave the theatre.

Most importantly, everyone is welcome to do whatever they have to do to be able to enjoy the play. Whether you may need to make some noise, move around a bit, leave the theatre and take a break in the chill room, you're welcome in our theatre.
