Infinithéâtre’s The Unit is comprised of a group of seven wildly talented playwrights six of whom were each sponsored by a different English-language Québec theatre and one of whom was sponsored by a theatre in St. John’s Newfoundland.

Benefit Previews of I'm Not Here, the award-winning play by Marie-Claude Verdier in Montreal.
Ariana, a pleasant young woman, tells us the story of her life. In a torrent of words, she describes a daily existence that’s unravelling, sinking, and slipping inevitably towards the brutal and unpredictable unknown. Between her boss’ cupcake schedule and the distractions of her life as an urban singleton, Ariana loses her way and breaks down: a total implosion. Nothing’s ever over because nothing ever starts.
