Additional Advisories

PTE is proud to be a theatre that hosts new stories and new voices, and we hope everyone has a positive experience on their journey with our productions.

We want to acknowledge that, regardless of whether the performance is light-hearted or serious, there can be themes, images or language that may affect people negatively.  As a theatre, we provide audience advisories and content warnings to prepare and care for our audience. 

In many cases, a general warning of content is given to prepare audiences. However, general warning of themes may not be enough in every case. PTE honours the integrity of the playwrights and does not censor their choices, but in cases where we can anticipate some patrons may have more specific concerns, our website and box office encourage audiences to request specific advisories from our box office staff prior to arriving at the theatre. You can make that inquiry at 204-942-5483, Monday to Saturday, noon to 6, or by emailing boxoffice@pte.mb.ca.

For some, the described content may have no effect, but for others these advisories are an essential part of keeping their reception of the play a safe experience. We recognize that we will never be able to fully anticipate what might be challenging material for every individual, but our team here at the theatre is working with a consultant to generate these advisories to the best of our abilities.

Scenes of sexual assault, coercion and sexual misconduct. Racism, xenophobia and classism. Alcohol consumption. Descriptions of sexual assault and sexual harrassment. Mentions of child molestation, child exploitation and sex with a minor. Descriptions of injury as a result of sexual violence.

Power. Privilege. Corruption.

This is a digital-only production - watch it at home!


World Premiere

“Politics and government are increasingly slipping back into the control of privileged elites in the manner characteristic of pre-democratic times.” – Colin Crouch

Welcome to the world of the 1%, the corporate elite, the “C-suite” – the “king-makers” whose influence flows through every aspect of our lives virtually unnoticed. When a CEO and his top executives are on a business trip for a major deal, a damaging sex scandal at the company is unearthed back home. As the pressure to complete the deal mounts, more secrets come to the surface, endangering the CEO's company, his family, and his legacy. What happens to morality when human beings have limitless power?

From the Playwright: "Post-Democracy is based on my real lived experiences of being around affluent high-level corporate executives. We talk a lot about the 1% who hold and exert power in in our culture but we rarely put them onstage. I hung around with the 1% for a while. I want to show them to you."

Globe & Mail Critic’s Pick. “Do you miss Succession? Watch Hannah Moscovitch’s Post-Democracy for another sordid succession saga”

“Amazing on all fronts. Production. Writing. Acting. Bravo on your first virtual production. Must see! Hannah doesn’t hold back and it’s a story that needs to be told.” – Christa W.
