A Canadian raised in India, Sharon returned to small town Alberta as a teenager and has never felt like she belonged anywhere. This feeling of alienation has only been compounded by the fact that Sharon has never been in a ‘normal’ relationship.
Sharon has a pattern.
Sharon has a weakness for a certain kind of man.
Sharon’s partners have all had one thing in common.
Sharon makes the best pickles you could imagine.
The Other was first produced as a co-production with the Good Women Dance Collective in Edmonton in 2016 as part of the Theatre Network Performance Series, followed by the Toronto premiere as a co-production with Company Blonde.
The Edmonton premiere starred Amber Borotsik, while the Toronto premiere starred Monica Dottor.
