“There are many moments that work wonderfully in [this] production.”

You Were There: Cowardfest 2015 (World Premiere)

By Logan Stefanson

You Were There is a journey into memory: exploring the moments we never let go and those we wish we could. This contemporary imagining of Noel Coward's 1935 one-act Shadowplay: A Musical Fantasia explores relationships, love, and loss, offering a prodding and humourous look at look at Coward's romantic idealism. In this world, fantasy meets reality and things aren't always what they seem.
