How to Feel: A Stage Reading

Running Time: 90 minutes

by Solomon Goudsward

How to Feel is a dramatic comedy exploring the complexities of relationships and emotional life in contemporary Canada.

Sam is a melancholic twenty-something whose best friends Jamie and Phoebe form the brunt of his social world - along with his therapist Johnathan. Together, against an uncertain future, Sam and his friends do their best to navigate love, childhood trauma, late capitalism, and friendship.

Admission to this reading of a play-in-development in the Firehall Arts Centre's studio is free. RSVP in advance through the online checkout process.

The reading will be followed by a talkback with the cast and playwright.

We’re Grateful to Be Here.

The Firehall Arts Centre is located on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations where they lived and gathered together for thousands of years. Acknowledging their connections to these lands is a significant part of what the Firehall considers when choosing the productions and presentations we undertake and how that work shapes and impacts those around us. We ask our community to reflect on what being present here means to you and those around you.
