The Devised Theatre Festival premieres four riveting new collaborative productions — each conceived, created, produced and performed by fourth-year students in Devised Theatre in the Department of Theatre’s Performance Creation & Research program.
The playbill features an original musical about student and thespian life; an immersive physical theatre work about night terrors; a comedic cabaret about issues faced by Millennials; and a gripping interactive piece set in a circus that explores spectacle and loneliness under the big top.
Each show is presented by a production company formed by a student ensemble within Devised Theatre. Festival production managers are Kait Gallant and Shannon Farrell.
The Devised Theatre Festival runs in two series, each presenting a double bill:
Mon. March 20 – 7:30pm (preview)
Wed. March 22 – 3:30pm
