For Better or Worse

For Better or Worse is a piece about closure and the impact we have on others. The show follows a couple who are moving out of their shared apartment. It quickly escalates into physical mess and emotional chaos as they process the end of their relationship. It was created and produced over the span of three weeks by Roanna de Guzman, Naomi Kaplan, Alice Marin, Sofia Shahbaz Zadeh, Megan Werle, Austin White, and Mya Wong.

“Life beats down and crushes the soul. And art reminds you that you have one,” Stella Adler. This quote is what inspired Alexander Franks to become an artist and what inspired this audio piece to spark joy and connection. He has had the honor of serving as producer, general manager, actor and creator for companies such as Mixed Company Theatre, Spur Of The Moment Shakespeare Collective, Tactics Theatre, Fu-Gen Asian Canadian Theatre Company and Ergo Arts Theatre. He would like to thank all those he has had the pleasure of working and learning alongside who continue to inspire him.
