The Concordia University Department of Theatre and Dance presents SKYSCRAPE: The Plebeian Scrolls, Feb. 19-22, 2015 at the E.M. Pearson Theatre.
- Thursday - Saturday, Feb. 19, 20, 21, 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, Feb. 22, 2:00 p.m.
An original theatre piece, this world premiere is inspired by the Henry VI plays of William Shakespeare, and the video game Skyrim. More than simply a recreation of a bygone world, however, the stage will be turned into a modern arena of company warfare, where business suits mingle with epic sword battles and dramas of intrigue. An idealistic but reluctant hero becomes an unwitting pawn of the powers competing for corporate dominance. Personal ambition and pride compete for the public’s loyalty, which is proven as fickle and uncontrollable as ever. In the end, the hero must decide whether to remain faithful to his ideals, or compromise for his own survival in a world that seems outside of everyone’s control.
Guest Artist Jon Ferguson, founder and Artistic Director of Theatre Forever, is a critically acclaimed director and theater-maker, specializing in collaboratively created new work and radical adaptations of classics. His work has been seen at The Southern Theater, The Guthrie Theater, Open Eye Figure Theater, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and The New York Clown Theater Festival.
