The Space Between
By Simeon Taole
Originally featured in the 2016 Atlantic Fringe Festival, in Menz Bar.
The Space Between has been published, nominated for and won several awards, toured within Canada, and staged Off Broadway in New York City. It is a coming of age meditation on young love through a historical and cross-cultural lens. A young boy in South Africa longs to reunite with his childhood sweetheart in Canada, before the space between them separates them forever. While the story takes place against the historical backdrop of Apartheid, it is ultimately a story of unrelenting hope and the innocence of young love. Inspired by actual events, the story is deeply moving and humourous.
