The Ties That Bind (Rescheduled!) NOV 4-8 at TPM Backspace

Our Souls presents the Newly Rescheduled World Premiere of

A brutally dark comedy
created & performed by JAMES INCE

“Do you understand? Does anyone understand?”

THE TIES THAT BIND is creator-performer James Ince’s semi-autobiographical solo show about the facts and fictions society tells itself regarding mental illness happening NOVEMBER 4-8 at the Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace. Eight years of love, humiliation, growth and painful existence have gone into the creation of this brutally dark comedy about living life as less-than-“normal”. Tickets are available  online at, or by phone at 416-504-7529.

Sam Ward has spent most of his life trying to deal with the fact that he is not normal, which is normal to him. Plagued by peers, bosses, and parents who cannot understand how he is feeling — but condemn him for it — Sam finds himself alone and broken. With humour and humanity to guide him, Sam tells a true story of surviving mental illness, rather than the stigma of suffering from it.
