“Quintana’s writing is natural, bitingly funny, and heartfelt.” Georgia Straight
Commissioned by the Belfry and written by a Jessie and Dora Award-winning BC playwright, As Above appeals to the hope in all of us.
Set in Victoria, As Above centres on Jo, eight years sober, and attempting to rebuild the life she destroyed. Once a prominent botanical researcher, she now lectures at a horticultural centre, while embarking on a new relationship with Rick, who may be too good to be true.
A mysterious phone call sends her on an urgent quest to find Ada, her estranged daughter, as her research bleeds into her complicated personal life in rich, unexpected, and life-changing ways.
As Above runs February 6 – March 3 with Pay What You Can tickets available for all performances.
