We are excited to announce the artistic team for the world premiere of EDEN by Artistic Director Hope McIntyre, which runs from April 27 to May 13, 2012 at the University of Winnipeg Asper Centre for Theatre of Film (400 Colony Street).
Some of our audiences may recall earlier readings and workshops of the play as it is has been in development over several years. Rick Chafe, whose play Secret Mask was recently staged at Prairie Theatre Exchange to rave reviews has been working as dramaturg over the last few months and we are excited by the play’s progress. We know it will be a must-see event!
At the helm for the world premiere production will be local favourite Sharon Bajer. We are extremely pleased to have Sharon on board as director. She just returned from two seasons at the Stratford Festival in the Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction.
Due to the fact that the story is told through three generations, the cast includes a mix of established actors well-known on Winnipeg stages and new faces. The show features: Kevin Anderson, Andrea Del Campo, Kevin Gabel, Ti Hallas, Marsha Knight, Tracy Penner, Steven Ratzlaff and Tom Soares.
The show is a challenging piece with a large cast, use of video and dystopian setting. Our amazing designers include:
Set Design by Kim Griffin

Sound Design by Chris Coyne
