In October of 2017, Matchstick Theatre presented the ten-year anniversary production of Catherine Banks’ Governor General’s award-winning play Bone Cage at the Bus Stop Theatre.
Set against the backdrop of the forestry industry, Bone Cage takes a hard look at the lives of seven people in rural Nova Scotia. Each of the intensely relatable and complex characters is looking to escape, but will their pasts, circumstances, or relationships allow it? It is a bleak, real, and identifiable play that pulls no punches.

Catherine Banks’ Bone Cage played at The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op from October 5th-15th, 2017, with the support of Theatre Nova Scotia.
