In 2010 Gillian Clark was hit by an SUV while she was walking down Spring Garden Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was on the sidewalk. Now, Gillian is a professional theatre artist. Let’s Try This Standing is a sixty minute show about shitting on nurses, having sex with atrophied muscles, awkward interactions with bagel eating massage therapists, and everything else that has happened since the accident.

Blending intimate storytelling, observational comedy, and imaginative design, Gillian Clark creates a communal experience with Let’s Try This Standing. It doesn’t offer easy answers, but it does give us a chance to be in a room together and be honest about how okay we are.

Let’s Try This Standing deals with recovery as an ongoing process.

Created and performed by Gillian Clark
Directed by Anthony Black
Stage management and projection design by Daniel Oulton
Produced by Karen Gross and Laura Vingoe-Cram
