Bygone Theatre has reached out to some local theatre’s in preparation for our Retro Radio Hour – Suspense!
We’ve been very lucky to have gotten a lot of positive feedback and to have received donations from several companies for our raffle. Up first, a pair of tickets to “The Skriker”; here are all the deets:
September 9th, 2014 This October, two of Toronto’s hottest indie theatre companies
In his directorial debut, Daniel Pagett helms a cast of Toronto’s hottest Indie talents: Claire Armstrong (Dora award winnerAfter Miss Julie, Rock), Perrie Olthuis, Suzette McCanny (Shakespeare Bash’d), Claire Burns (Hatched, Human Furniture, Shrew), Sam Coyle, Elise Bauman, Karen Knox (Sam and Kate are not Breaking Up, Shrew), Tim Walker (NOW Magazines 2012 “Artists to watch”, Punch Up, Help Yourself, Sam and Kate are Not Breaking Up), Jeff Hanson (Shrew, Classical Theatre Project), Luke Marty (A Midsummer Night’s Dream…A Puppet Epic!, Theatre 20 collective ensemble, The Cocksure Lads), John Fleming (Shrew), Andy Trithardt (Delicacy, Rock, Sucker) and two time Dora nominee Jakob Ehman (Cockfight, Donors, Minotaur).
Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker is often described as her ‘impossible play’, due to the magical nature of the show, the shattered language with which the narrator speaks, and the sheer scope of the faerie underworld that it weaves in and out of. This unique theatrical experience will invite the audience into The Storefront Theatre, transformed into a portal to the faeries’ home by our critically acclaimed design team: makeup wizard Angela McQueen (Classical Theatre Project, ROTC, Brouhaha), costume design by Kendra Terpenning (wardrobe After Miss Julie), set design by Holly Lloyd (Stratford Festival, ROTC, Brouhaha) and lighting by Indie veteran Melissa Joakim (Cockfight, Punch Up). Incorporating physical theatre, mask, dance and a world premiere score composed by Andy Trithardt, The Skriker provides a completely immersive experience in this dark and twisted world.
