About the Play:

Finalist for the 2022 Governor General's Literary Award for drama (Canadian equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize)

Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down is a full-length comedic drama by Robert Chafe. Frenetic, tender, and sometimes scary, Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down is a stumbling folly about the aging body, mid-life anxiety, and what it means to live when you can't know what's next.

Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down is the one-man about anxiety, mortality, creativity, and control. After an unexpected night in a Regina hospital emergency room, Robert Chafe can't shake the burning question of whether he's Tennessee Williams or Dorothy Zbornak. Are his symptoms a harbinger of a terrifying undiagnosed condition, or is it all just in his head? Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down explores unanswered, or perhaps unanswerable, questions relating to mortality, fear, illness, health, loss and existence.

Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down premiered in 2021 at the historic LSPU Hall (so named as it was formerly owned by the Longshoremen's Protective Union) in the heart of downtown St. John's, Newfoundland.
