Stay Tuned for the 2019 festival program

Tomorrow’s Child by the Ghost River Theatre


Ghost River Theatre, with special permission from the Ray Bradbury estate, has created a new audio only adaptation of Bradbury’s sci-fi short story Tomorrow’s Child as a one-of-kind, audio-only theatre experience presented to a blindfolded audience. This ain’t no radio play–the quirks of 50s sci-fi are reimagined for a highly immersive sonic environment, created with the latest in sound technology. An unforgettable sonic journey that has to be heard to be believed.

Bradbury’s classic short story presents two new parents in an imagined future confronting the realities of their newborn son–who has been born into another dimension. Will they accept the divide between parent and child? Or find another solution?


Macbeth Muet by La Fille Du Laitier

Screen Shot 2018-09-29 at 8.49.50 PM

A soldier loyal to his country encounters three witches on the battlefield that tell him he will be king. Now, Macbeth and his partner in crime, lady Macbeth, are on a bloody path of ambition, power, and betrayal.

Macbeth Muet completely deconstructs this Shakespeare Tragedy into a fastpaced, visceral theatre experience, using the body, objects as imagery, and a ton of fake blood. Entire scenes are reduced to a single look, as Shakespeare’s complex and beautiful poetry is rendered mute, and searing. And through it all, a couple is transformed irrevocably. Our Macbeth is a world so devoid or morality or thought and so disposed towards action and results that human lives are as disposable as styrofoam cups. And the excess, the blood, the scraps, the waste, will all be left behind for future kings.


Bushel and Peck by Alastair Knowles and Stéphanie Morin-Robert


Alastair Knowles (James & Jamesy) and Stéphanie Morin-Robert (Merkin Sisters / BLINDSIDE) fuse their mastery of comedy and movement as they tear up their performance handbook, touch the untouchable, and are blown away by the uproarious consequences.

Bushel and Peck will boisterously charm your naked heart.
