4 Reasons to join the CHILD-ish Watch Party
  1. Ever heard the phrase ‘I can’t adult today’? Turns out that what we worry about as so-called grown-ups is not more demanding than what kids grapple with. In CHILD-ish, we encounter fun ideas alongside sombre thoughts, from starting a protest to make Wednesday a weekend to pondering what happens beyond the grave. Watch CHILD-ish to discover what kids have to say about the world.
  2. CHILD-ish is a future-facing experiment that shows us what happens when you listen to children in the here and now. Usually, when we watch theatre plays or TV shows, they are made by adults for adults. Or by adults for children. CHILD-ish was made by Sunny Drake with a core team of 7 kids as essential collaborators.
  3. It’s an opportunity to see the latest work of Sunny Drake, dubbed ‘one of Canada’s brightest playwrights’ (Broadway World). It’s also the only chance to see the episodes hosted by children and Sunny himself.
  4. You learn a lot about unicorns.

What would the world be like if we let ourselves be a bit more childish?


In this special video presentation of CHILD-ish, a dynamite cast of adult actors speak children’s exact words about love, life and the world. Instead of pretending to be children, they perform as adults, allowing us to hear kids’ ideas and experiences anew. It’s surprising, hilarious and moving.

Originally a theatre play, CHILD-ish was created by Sunny Drake and drawn from interviews with over 40 whip-smart (and brutally honest) children. This special watch party event gives you the full experience of the fresh new web series - through the perspectives of the brilliant kids from the CHILD-ish team, who will be your hosts alongside Sunny Drake himself.



More about the Watch Party

This is a one-time event that starts at 7:30 CDT on Thursday, September 23. It’s a unique combination of a streamed video with a live chat. Your hosts, Sunny and several of the kids whose words you’ll hear in CHILD-ish, will let you in on how the series was created. They’ll be posing some fun questions, and you’re invited to play by entering answers in the live chat.

We strongly advise that you sign in at least 10-15 minutes before 7:30, so that if you encounter a problem, there’s time to trouble-shoot.
