In an instant, the world changes. Electricity stops flowing and humanity is left in the dark. Two women - free-spirited Bern and cranky Elena - are exiled from their village for being too old to bear children. Under a winter’s moon they retreat to the bush, where they must rely on traditional knowledge to survive. When a charismatic young stranger from the village arrives seeking their aid, the women must decide whether to share their wisdom, and give the society that rejected them a chance at a future.
Inspired by the Gwich'in story Two Old Women.

Gwaandak Theatre is fresh from their inagural performing arts residency: @YAC, with a brand new original production: The Unplugging.
