On the day before their return flight to New York, twenty-somethings Julie and Kai have a falling out that sends them on a journey into the heart of Paris. Suddenly by herself, Kai meets Radha and Anissa, a middle-aged couple in a life-altering moment, just as Julie encounters Ira—a woman waging a war against the world, determinedly alone. These encounters open a gateway into strange and unexpected kinship's and even healing. Getting There is a lyrical, funny, and philosophical meditation on solitude, love, and what it means to come home.
GETTING THERE is a New Conservatory Theatre Centre New Voices/New Work commission.
