The Cultch presents Act of Faith

Historic Theatre, 1895 Venables St11 Apr '19 to 20 Apr '19 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    The Cultch is pleased to present the world premiere of Act of Faith, a new play by Janet Munsil, commissioned and produced by Realwheels (Vancouver), and running at the Historic Theatre April 11-20, 2019.

    “Just because you don’t believe something doesn’t mean it isn’t true”

    An inexplicable recovery changes the lives of a community. After years living with paraplegia, Faith can suddenly walk, and believes she has been healed by a miracle. But, what about those closest to her? What about her friends and family? What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves, or those closest to us, is challenged by new information? A new play inspired in part by the true story of the mysterious recovery by a young Vancouver woman who lived with paraplegia for 13 years, Act of Faith asks, if you aren’t religious, can you still believe in a miracle? It is the story of a life changing and controversial event that baffled the medical community, aroused conflicting emotions in the disability community, and was celebrated by some in the religious community.

    Known for authentic storytelling, Realwheels is an award-winning theatre company producing performances that deepen audiences' understanding of the disability experience. Act of Faith features a mixed ability cast, and explores wheelchair movement in unique, never before seen ways. With a cast of some of Vancouver’s most exciting performers, including Emily Grace Brook, who lives with paraplegia, and appears in a pivotal lead role,this new play explores the mystery—and controversy—of faith-based healing, and the consequences of a life-changing transformation.
