Presented by One Yellow Rabbit & Alberta Theatre Projects

Life, Death and The Blues

A Theatre Passe Muraille Production, in association with Hope And Hell Theatre Co.


A play. A concert. A conversation. An entertainment. A biography. An autobiography. A multimedia extravaganza.

Created by Gemini-nominated actor and Maple Blues Award-winner Raoul Bhaneja, this fusion performance mixes genres to explore the power, passion and meaning of The Blues. Bhaneja, and Juno Award-winning Canadian R&B/Soul singer Divine Brown, accompanied by Blues musicians, converse, banter and play the Blues. Each night Bhaneja
introduces us to the music of legends like T-Bone Walker and Paul Oscher; and he interviews and jams with a Blues Legend.

Through sharp and witty dialogue, the characters explore the genre and their personal histories; wrestling with the cultural complexities that surround “The Blues”.

What they're saying:

"Ms. Brown is indeed divine and is not only a winning foil for Bhaneja, she delivers two show-stopping solos."
