Delta Stageworks Presents
Then & Now- an online docucomedy shorts web series
available FREE on YouTube

Back in the spring 2020, as the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic went from something happening ‘’over there” somewhere; to something fearfully immediate and visceral in our lives, at Delta Stageworks we started thinking about creating a storytelling theatre piece around these lived experiences in our local community. We invited members of the community to join us in documenting and creatively processing what was happening around us and created a theatre event. We figured that sometime down the road we might all want to reflect back on some of the monumental impacts to our lives the pandemic wrought. 

Flash forward to 2024… working with company member, filmmaker Cliff Caprani, the company has come together again to take a retrospective look at the impacts of two years of lockdown living. In a ‘docucomedy’ digital shorts series that delivers humour and hope, you’ll meet members of the Delta community and the Delta Stageworks creatives who put the original project together.
