About the show:

The Waltz by Marie Beath Badian

directed by Nina Lee Aquino | A Factory Theatre Production

“Badian’s rom-com oozes nostalgia and charm, a ‘90s tale of boy-meets-girl with substance and bite.”

– Aisling Murphy, Intermission Magazine

Romeo Alvarez is travelling across the country from Ontario to British Columbia to attend university when he makes a pit-stop in Saskatchewan to connect with some of his mom’s old friends. His journey leads him to a remote cabin where his unexpected arrival is greeted by a suspicious Beatrice Klassen. It is here, on these doorsteps of a rustic cabin in North East Saskatchewan that two teenagers, whose histories are serendipitously interweaved, spend one evening with a boombox under the magnificent Saskatchewan sky at dusk.

A romantic comedy that is sure to capture the hearts of audiences, The Waltz explores whether we ever truly feel at home in the world.

The Waltz was named The Globe and Mail’s Critic’s Pick and included in its Top Ten Toronto Productions of 2022.
