About Growing, Grieving, and Being Guyanese
The People LOVE CHUMP!
Production Stills by Brianne Jang of BB Collective
The Kumar Family suffers a tremendous loss when they suddenly lose their family’s matriarch. While the family gathers at Grandma Baby’s “Nine Day,” they learn a hard but necessary lesson about the root of their grief, the fortitude of their joy, and the tension that arises from everyone’s favourite card game: T’ruup Chaal.
CHUMP is being workshopped from May 29 to June 11, 2023 as part of Sue Goberdhan’s time with the CONFLUENCE Fellowship at Catalyst Theatre.
There will be a workshop presentation of this new work on June 11, 2023 at 7:30 PM at the Studio Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta. Tickets are now on sale!
This venue is wheelchair accessible and tickets are being offered on a Pay-What-You-Will basis. Any financial support is appreciated, but your presence is worth just as much!
This piece is made possible with contributions from Catalyst Theatre, Fringe Theatre, Alpacalypse Productions, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
