This production was the Atlantic Canadian premiere of the Governor General Award winning script by Sambro playwright Catherine Banks.

A co-production with White Rooster Theatre, It Is Solved By Walking ran at the Neptune Scotiabank Studio Theatre in Halifax from October 1-5, 2014 and at LSPU in St. John’s from October 22-26, 2014.

It Is Solved By Walking is framed by the American poet Wallace Stevens’ brilliant if enigmatic poem, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” Tantalizingly surreal, the play is at its core the story of a woman determined to escape the prison of a failed marriage and reclaim her creativity. It Is Solved By Walking is full of passion, wit, grace, and sensuality.
