World Premiere

Honour Beat

By Tara Beagan
Directed by Michelle Thrush

Two grown sisters face off over their mother's death-bed. Together they confront one another, their own identities, and what will remain when their mom leaves this world. A contemporary look at the significance of faith and family - this play will leave you laughing through your tears as these women grapple with one of life's most difficult inevitabilities. Internationally acclaimed Calgary-based playwright Tara Beagan brings her distinct voice to Theatre Calgary for the first time, directed by film and TV favourite Michelle Thrush.

Family is universal, and the complex stories of family have been told by generations throughout the decades. Honour Beat is a touching and humorous play that reminds us that relationships within families are fragile, forgiving, and most importantly, resilient.
- Stafford Arima
