We All Got Lost by Camille Intson
Five schoolgirls form a sacred storyteller’s club in the thick woods of an impenetrable Northern Ontarian township. Spinning tales among the trees, they turn the forest, and to each other, to grapple with the uneasy transitions of young adulthood. When tragedy shocks the community, the girls are forced to reckon with the events that each led them to the woods that night, and the deathly consequences that followed.
Winner of the 2019 Hamilton Fringe New Play Contest and Best of Fringe, We All Got Lost is a queer gothic coming-of-age play about girlhood, disobedience, passion, and what happens when storytelling goes too far.
