Show Your Love for Local Theatre – Support Boundary Avenue Today!

This May, One Trunk Theatre will premiere Boundary Avenue – our investigation inspired by the over 1000 asylum seekers who crossed the USA/Canada border at Emerson, Manitoba in 2017; and, our collaboration with some of the individuals who made the journey.

You’re invited to be part of the community who brings this show to life! Our goal is to engage 300 people who believe in this production. We want each person to donate a micro-gift of $10 (for a total of $3000), and we are giving ourselves only 30 days to reach this goal (ending Saturday, March 17)!

We are thrilled to be donating a portion of the production’s proceeds to Razak Iyal and Seidu Mohammed who lent their stories to our play. Razak and Seidu crossed the border on December 24th, 2016- the end of over two years of running from Ghana. Both of them lost their hands to frost bite. We want to share their experiences, while helping them with their rehabilitation and integration into our community. We are fundraising to reduce our production costs. The more money we raise, the more we can support Razak and Seidu.

Your generosity will support new, intensely local, and relevant theatre; while sharing the important narratives of our former-refugee community.

Thank you.
