A special theatre evening with award-winning renowned environmentalists Dr. David Suzuki and Tara Cullis about love and the planet.

What You Won’t Do For Love

Tickets can be purchased at the door, subject to availability.

Experience a special live evening with award-winning renowned environmentalists David Suzuki and Tara Cullis in What You Won’t Do For Love, a unique and intimate theatre experience that asks whether the love we have for each other can inspire us to take action for the planet. 

Actors and real-life couple Miriam Fernandes and Sturla Alvsvaag navigate a poetic and playful dialogue on stage with David and Tara, who have been a couple for 5 decades. Through honest reflection and lively conversation, David and Tara share powerful insights and captivating stories garnered over a lifetime of environmental activism and the deep bond of their partnership. 

Directed by Why Not Theatre Founder and Co-Artistic Director Ravi Jain (Sea Sick, Prince Hamlet) with dramaturgy by Broadleaf Theatre Artistic Director Kevin Matthew Wong (The Chemical Valley Project), What You Won’t Do For Love asks us to consider love’s capacity to inspire action and propel us all towards a healthier, sustainable planet. 

After select performances, the audience is invited to stay and explore these questions further during an informal Q&A with David, Tara, and special guests.

The print edition of What You Won’t Do for Love will be available from Coach House Books at each performance. Visit Coach House Books for more information.
