Bello is a new theatre for young audiences play by Governor General Award-winning playwright Vern Thiessen (Einstein’s Gift, Bird Brain, Shakespeare’s Will) which deals with the themes of compassion, empathy, acceptance and celebrating difference. A first-time initiative meant to promote linguistic and cultural cooperation and sensitivity, L’UniThéâtre and Concrete Theatre, Edmonton's premier theatre for young audiences (TYA) company, have partnered together to create this TYA co-production, which will be touring throughout elementary schools in Alberta and British-Columbia in both French and English. The French version has been translated by L’UniThéâtre’s Artistic Director, Brian Dooley, and will be performed in Francophone and French Immersion schools.
