    Trauma, truth, freedom & the internet age


    The estranged mother of 25-year old Kate is on her death bed. A Facebook post becomes the subject of heated debate. Then, a knock on the door. A play about gaps in how people perceive and understand the world they live in, female generational rage, and the loneliness of holding onto one’s own truth.


    Ellie Moon's docu-play is timely, personal and riveting, just make sure you leave some time to talk about it with someoneafterwards. - Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine - "Asking For It" Named one of NOW Magazine's Top Theatre Productions of 2017
    At any time, during any year or any news cycle, this is a show everyone should see...Asking For It is an incredible accomplishment, not just in what it puts onstage but in the offstage conversations it will inspire. Just about everyone we've heard from, like us, left the theatre wanting to talk about what we'd all just seen, to connect it to our own experiences. It's a vital piece of theatre. - May Antaki & Maija Kappler, Intermission Magazine - "Asking For It" named one of Intermission Magazine's "Top 10 Theatre Productions of 2017"
    “A bracing pleasure … A sly, intelligent piece of documentary theatre borne of Ghomeshi-gate." - Simon Houpt, The Globe & Mail - "Asking For It"
