After the Crash theatre performance about TBI sponsored by Webster & Associates

Ruckus Ensemble After the CrashWe are pleased to be sponsoring a performance of After the Crash with Vancouver Coastal Health and Connect Communities.  After the Crash is engaging research-based theatre performance about traumatic brain injury.

The After the Crash performance group are one of the keynote presenters at Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference (Feb 15-17, 2012) who have agreed to put on an additional, free, performance at GF Strong on Tuesday February 14, 2012 at 11.30am.

What is the play about?
While the story of After the Crash is fictional, each situation or scene in the play is based on real events and situations.

Elliot is a young professional who has suffered a traumatic brain injury. Because of this experience, he is faced with the challenge of rebuilding his life and his relationships, and the people around him play an important role in his struggle towards recovery.

How was the play developed?
Originally developed by the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and the University of Toronto, it is a unique synthesis of research and art derived from focus group research with brain injury survivors, their family members and health care providers to learn about their experiences.

Who is this play for?
This play is intended for healthcare providers and TBI survivors alike.
