Outdoor Rom-Com About Dating Six Feet Apart Coming To Globus Theatre

KAWARTHA LAKES-Toronto’s Sudden Spark Collective comes to Globus Theatre at the end of February to perform the world premiere of february: a love story, to Bobcaygeon audiences…outdoors with bonfires and warm refreshments! 

The Lakeview Arts Barn will provide the perfect outdoor space for this exhilarating new piece of site-specific theatre to come to life while adhering to physical distancing. From February 26th to the 28th, audiences can enjoy the perfect date – a warm meal, hot drinks, a bonfire and LIVE theatre!

He’s looking for feelings, she’s looking for a rebound… To stave off the pandemic blues, two mismatched millennials try their hand at ‘short distance dating’, but can they keep things from getting complicated? Enter our Winter wonderland to experience the rom-com you won’t find on Netflix. 

Ellen Denny and Emilio Vieira have come together to write and perform a 60-minute outdoor winter theatre production that captures the magic and the challenges of connecting romantically in a physically distanced world. Compelled by the need for stories that combine love and laughter in this time of global uncertainty, february: a love story frames finding love not as a fairytale, but as an act of resiliency and hope.  

“As we continue to battle COVID-19,” director Mairi Babb says, “I see so much potential to give our audiences hope, joy and light through this shared experience. This play is magic.” 

This project marks a new collaboration between Globus Theatre & Sudden Spark Collective as well as between actor/creators Emilio Vieira and Ellen Denny. Vieira has performed with Shakespeare in High Park, Crow’s Theatre (Towards Youth), Canadian Stage (Tartuffe) and the Stratford Festival. Denny is best known for starring as Alice in Life After (Canadian Stage / Musical Stage) for which she received a Dora nomination and was named one of NOW Magazine’s Breakthrough Toronto Stage Artists (2017). Denny’s Pleasureville premiered at Neptune Theatre in 2019, and she was a 2020 finalist for the Cayle Chernin Award.
