DRAW ME CLOSE

Canadian playwright-director Jordan Tannahill partners with the National Theatre and the National Film Board Canada to create Draw Me Close, a vivid memoir about his relationship with his mother in the wake of her terminal cancer diagnosis. A deceptively simple and human approach to immersive technology allows the audience member to experience life as five-year-old Jordan inside a live, illustrated world. This special presentation at Tribeca Storyscapes is a world premiere of the first chapter of Draw Me Close.
