Show Info

“Everyone stop what you’re doing and go see Mustard…It. Was. Perfect… a magical, perfectly acted and incredibly well written piece of perfection… everything I want in a play.” — Belfry Patron

“Mustard is a show with a lot of heart in just the right places. Tugging at heartstrings, redemptive and ultimately hopeful, it’s the kind of play that reminds you of the joy of imagination, and the power of unconditional love.” — CVTV

★★★★★ “90 minutes of emotionally complex, witty and well-paced magic — literally and figuratively.” —EXAMINER.COM

“Wonderful and weird…signals a powerful and welcome new voice in contemporary theatre.” THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT

A surreal comedy about friends, real and imagined.

Thai is sixteen. Her father has left and her mother finds solace at the bottom of a wine glass. Mustard, her imaginary friend, is still living under her bed and he doesn’t want to leave her.

Sandler won the 2016 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play for this magical twisted fairy tale about love, desire and moving on.

RUNNING TIME – 90 minutes / no intermission

Kat Sandler is a young playwright with a unique voice, and Mustard is an unusual combination – a sweet-natured comedy about the challenges life throws our way. —MS
