Gracie’s world is full of faith and family, but as a fifteen-year-old girl brought as a small child into a polygamous community, she feels increasing pressure to conform. Will she dare to take the leap and step into the outside world? In this stunning new play from Governor General Award-winner, Joan MacLeod, we see the world through Gracie’s eyes, as she navigates her way to finding herself.
You’ll find PTE on the third floor of the Portage Place Shopping Centre, around the corner from the clock tower.
There is convenient heated, underground parking in Portage Place, with entrances off Carlton and Vaughan Streets. >> Click here for a map. The elevator near the Carlton entrance goes all the way up to PTE on the third floor – you’ll recognize it from the lighted PTE poster on the side of the elevator foyer.
All subscribers get free parking with their subscriptions. Casual ticket buyers must pay for their own parking, but are offered a discount on Jets game nights.
NOTE: On Jets game nights, the Portage Place parkade holds back spots to accommodate PTE patrons, but it may take longer than usual to find a spot, so leave extra time on those nights.
