Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn’t mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you’ve figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you’ve healed.
This is a new day.
Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us – new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.
