Inspired by true events, The Wager is award-winning Theatre Gargantua’s bold and irreverent investigation into the strange things that people believe. Climate change deniers, anti-vaxxers, creationists, in-your-face-fact-defying-politicians, and yes, flat-earthers; beliefs held by a surprising number of intelligent humans, beliefs that not only defy logic, but could be threatening our existence on the planet. Now more than ever, the stakes could not be higher.

Theatre Gargantua is top-of-the-line when it comes to multi-disciplinary works. Every production is filled with dazzling technical wizardry and imaginative physicality, and the subject matter is always provocative.

- The Globe and Mail

**** - compelling of the best sort. - Gargantua never ceases to push the boundaries of our imaginations. And beyond those boundaries, it is clear, Gargantua has envisaged a whole new world and called it theatre.
