Roula Said, playing the poet, looks sideways with a faint smile wearing a red robe. Lara Arabian, playing Leila, looks ahead with feeling. A white chalk writes "I wrote twenty lines about love"

Erased, a new work by Coleen Shirin MacPherson, is an absurdist physical theatre piece that brings us into the uncanny world of a greeting card factory, where workers negotiate their relationship to a system of power only to learn that people are being “disappeared”.  Set in a post-climate collapse landscape, it is a play that speaks to our addiction to production in late-capitalism and is a call to look deeper into the state of our planet and the structures that have entrapped us. 

Coming soon!

Descriptions of violence.
