The Dilemma

Whats On

What shall we call our country?

All of us spend our days going along with decisions made by people we will never meet, in meetings we will never go to. These decisions, large and small, are often made by mysterious advisory committees, governance boards, and consultants.

The Dilemma invites audiences to be a part of such a meeting, where cast and audience members alike take part in making decisions for others - in this case, what the name of our country should be. Like a pick-a-path book brought to life, every performance provides an opportunity for the audience to direct what happens.

“A fabulously fun night… another thought provoking HSTC piece…plenty of laughs and also much to ponder afterwards" - Audience member
