Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone our show with Sarah Polley, originally scheduled for this Saturday, May 28. We are working to find a new date for this much anticipated show within our fall Imaginairium festival, September 29 - October 6.

All ticket holders have been contacted, and they will be automatically transferred to the new show date. If you currently have tickets and would prefer to request a full refund, please contact boxoffice@wordfest.com.
