The De Chardin Project
As the curtain opens on Adam Seybold’s The De Chardin Project, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is caught between the worlds of the living and the dead. The influential scholar has just suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, but fortunately he finds a mysterious guide in the transitional plane where he lands.
Teilhard was accustomed to the in-between places. During World War I, he carried soldiers from the front lines to safety as a stretcher-bearer. As a priest, his controversial beliefs on evolution drove him into exile. But over the course of his troubled life, he made countless contributions to both the religious and scientific fields, which are explored in depth in this Dora Mavor Moore Award–winning play.

About Theatre Passe Muraille
When Theatre Passe Muraille opened in 1968, it transformed the historic landmark Nasmith Bakery and Staples into a sanctuary for new Canadian art. But true to its name, the theatre is not constrained by any walls—literally or figuratively. Besides encouraging independent and experimental works, Theatre Passe Muraille expands beyond its brick-and-mortar location to stage innovative site-specific performances throughout Toronto. They practice a collaborative philosophy in order to achieve their far-ranging goals, valuing value risk higher than success or number of bouquets tossed onstage.
