We are excited to be premiering this original work, which combines video, music, dance and theatre to explore the notions of truth and justice.
The truth can only remain buried for so long. It has a habit of coming back to haunt us.
EDEN is a bold and compelling new Canadian play written by Winnipeg-based playwright Hope McIntyre. It combines the style of writers Caryl Churchill and Harold Pinter with its futuristic political bent. It is an exciting piece not only due to its epic nature, exploring three generations of characters in a futuristic dystopia, but also due to the large cast size and unique production demands. It is an interdisciplinary theatre experience which pulls from many cultural backgrounds. Above all it is a puzzle where the truth is explored from many vantage points.
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 P. Gabel, Ti Hallas, Marsha Knight, Tracy Penner, Steven Ratzlaff and Tom Soares.
