The entirely youth run Eternal Theatre Collective presents the Canadian Premiere of Seven Minutes in Heaven by Steven Levenson (Dear Evan Hansen), at Studio 16 from March 7 – 10, 2018.
It’s a Friday night in 1995. Six over-stimulated, under-supervised high school students are gathered in Margot’s basement to meet her mysterious boyfriend from summer camp — though none of them have even seen a picture of him and he has yet to show up. As the teens keep themselves busy with rounds of party games, the night gives way to stolen kisses, malicious gossip, and broken hearts. This heartbreaking, hilariously real play showcases the absurd and terrible ecstasy of being young in America.
The New York Times said “The play is so real you almost believe it was written by one of its characters.”
Seven Minutes in Heaven is a startlingly accurate look into the minds of teenagers. The all youth cast features Julien Hicks (15 years old), Shelby Satterthwaite (18 years old), Hira Lalani (16 years old), Alain Tahir (17 years old), Sean Cuevas (16 years old), and Brielle Chan (16 years old).
Eternal Theatre Collective is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to providing young people with hands on, paid experience in theatre. Since 2015, Eternal Theatre Collective has produced ten shows including plays, musicals, and cabarets. Every production by ETC is entirely produced and performed by young people aged 13-25.
