This darkly comic, distinctly Canadian work is a probing exploration of art, politics, war, and the messy areas where they become indistinguishable. An important and timely original production, Sean Devine’s satiric appraisal is carried out through three interweaving story lines: A summit of minds in a secret military base; A radio broadcast from the brink of arctic war; and a group of actors under government muzzle. Except in the Unlikely Event… bends the lines between theatre, film, and reality to explore media, the message, and who is really in control. #artisaweapon
To execute this cutting commentary, the companies have assembled a cast of local luminaries including Robert Moloney, Josette Jorge, and Lucia Frangione, as well as Devine and Wolfe themselves.
Two tickets to the premiere of Except in the Unlikely Event of War at Roundhouse Community Centre on November 15, 2013 at 8 pm.
