"We are shown here a piece of theatre that sets itself apart. It is a tragic and daring look at storytelling and how, as much as we crave the fantasy, we are still forced to deal with the realities of life. I can't recommend this enough. It will take your breath away."  (Steel City Girl)

SYNOPSIS
Listen up. Billie's going to tell you a story. A band of schoolgirls forms a sacreligious storyteller's circle in the thick Northern Ontario woods. But when happens when stories go off their hinges? We All Got Lost is a coming-of-age play about the tales we choose to tell or re-tell.
 
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY
We All Got Lost was developed by and through Pantheon Projects in London, Ontario in mid-late 2018, cumulating in workshop sessions featuring readers Hailey Hill, Jade Walker, Abbey Arnott, Jesslyn Hodgson, and Ariana Magliocco.

"There is masterful physical creation as the cast forms tableaux, set pieces, and various fantasy characters. There are too many beautiful ensemble moments and it is an absolutely captivating group performance. It was difficult to look away from the stage as you are afraid to miss a moment. I must also mention the intense and precise technical demands of this production are matched by the expert prowess of their stage manager, David Faulkner-Rundle."

"There is certainly a lovely language and flow to the script that I imagine would be wonderful to read, and honestly it flows beautifully on stage. It also covers some subject material that needs a voice. There is much theatricality to this piece that essentially, quite works for the material. The cast is very good. The tech is very good... Is it the top show of this year's Fringe? ...It's up there."

"Winner of the Hamilton Fringe New Play Contest, this production has already elicited a lot of attention. It has a young local playwright (Camille Intson), and an all female ensemble cast. We All Got Lost is billed as a coming of age tale, and follows a group of Northern Ontario Catholic schoolgirls attempting to navigate, as best as they can, the rigors of school, adolescence, family, and identity. They turn to each other, and to the woods where they start spinning tales among the trees.
 
Play acting like girls, yet grappling with ever more mature and troubling issues, the act of their storytelling itself symbolizes the uneasy transitions they are each trying to make in their lives. At times ethereal and atmospheric, the production values, including lighting and sound, are excellent. Stage Manager David Faulkner-Rundle has done an exceptional job. The saying, ‘always leave them wanting more,’ may very well be true here. This story gives much to ponder after the actors have left the stage."
