WHAT AUDIENCES ARE SAYING...
“One of the most amazing shows I've ever seen. We are Not Alone at the @segalcentre blew my mind!”
“Fantastic show! Out of this world!”
“A Brilliant Play”
“We Are Not Alone is a highlight of the #Mtltheatre season-Sharp, funny & masterfully performed by Damien Atkins”
“He asks: where is the faith and hope and joys we hold dear to our hearts. Very humorous. If you want to do something special, with a loved one, this is a great way to spend an evening.”
“The question is not “are they really here?” The real question is: “what are they trying to tell us?”
In a world populated by mysterious sightings, videos of shapes moving in shadows and inexplicable crop circles, a playwright searches for answers. Are these occurrences a sign of otherworldly visitors, or are we being deceived? Multi-award winning performer Damien Atkins invites you to experience a funny and moving theatrical ride into one of the most extraordinary and provocative subjects of our time.
Show length: 85 minutes
