BECCA - Théâtre populaire d'Acadie
This bilingual production, in its world premiere, tells the story of Rebecca Schofield, a teenager from Riverview, New Brunswick. After learning that she had terminal cancer, Rebecca (Becca for short) initiated an online movement encouraging people to perform acts of kindness and share them on social media using the hashtag #BeccaToldMeTo. Her actions quickly spread worldwide and continue to resonate today.
With an extensive provincial tour starting on the sixth anniversary of her passing at the age of 18, "Becca" will be a celebration of life and a reminder of how a little kindness can have a lasting impact.
"Becca" is produced in association with the Théâtre Populaire d'Acadie in Caraquet.
