Going On: The Movie

On Saturday February 15th, NotaBle Acts is pleased to present Going On – The Movie at 3 p.m. at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.

Going On is a performance film directed by Johanna Lunn that captures Liz Richardson’s one-woman show of self-discovery. Juxtaposing a North American theatre tour with Peter O’Toole in the 1970’s and a three-year Buddhist retreat in Cape Breton in the 2000’s,  the story weaves a path through age, stage and sage sharing her triumphs and disasters with vulnerability and irrepressible humour. Playing twelve characters Richardson counterpoints her struggles as a young actress on the road with Peter O’Toole in Toronto, Chicago and Washington–with her later challenges as a Buddhist on a three-year meditation retreat in Nova Scotia.
