"Theatre and storytelling can be a gentle, powerful and reflective way to explore difficult issues facing our society.  Presenting the performance of Getting to Room Temperature created a wonderful opportunity for our theatre to engage with medical, social and educational service organisations within our community. Arthur Milner’s disarming humour and personal story allows the audience to connect with this difficult topic. Robert Bockstael’s performance was masterful!"

— Erin Kennedy, Artistic Director, Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre

New work is underway

We’ve just finished a run of GETTING TO ROOM TEMPERATURE at the undercurrents festival in Ottawa. GETTING TO ROOM TEMPERATURE was the hit of the festival and, they say, the best-selling show in undercurrents’ 6-year history.

We are now working away at our next steps, including

  • A French translation
  • A tour to Prince Edward County
  • A tour to British Columbia

There will be more news soon. Meanwhile, if you would like to sponsor GETTING TO ROOM TEMPERATURE in your community, please be in touch at roomtemperaturecollective@gmail.com
