Mainstage

We are excited to announce the 2018-2019 Drama Mainstage Season:

inVISIBLE (Too)
Presented by the University of Lethbridge Department of Drama and Handsome Alice Theatre
Facilitated by Handsome Alice artists: Kathryn Smith and Makambe K. Simamba
Oct. 9 - 13, 2018 7:30 p.m.
David Spinks Theatre
Examining identity, inVISIBLE (Too) is an intimate slumber party; a joyful gathering of collective energy; a raw, vulnerable, complex, liberating Happening. Prepare to enter an immersive environment where human experience is explored through the lens of diverse perspectives; a world where the ebb of isolated solo narratives flow into collective community engagement.

 

She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen
Nov. 6 - 10, 2018 7:30 p.m.
University Theatre
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

 

Alice: A devised adaptation of Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland
Feb. 12 - 16, 2019 7:30 p.m.
David Spinks Theatre
Alice is a contemporary adaptation of Lewis Caroll's fantastical masterpiece that explores the puzzling journey of Alice through object theatre, puppetry and mask. The work will be created through a devised theatre process that reconsiders all the main characters in a present day context. 

 

DADA DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING: An Avant-garde Cabaret
Mar. 12 - 16, 2019 7:30 p.m.
David Spinks Theatre
A series of short pieces drawn from early-20th century art and theatre movements like Expressionism, Futurism, and Dada that sought alternatives to theatrical convention. These will be mounted in cabaret style by student-run aesthetic teams who will adapt them to our 21st-century context.
