“McCrackin 2: The Whackining” is based on a hit-man who tangos with a clandestine organization, executes an impossible heist, and find his missing son as he seeks redemption.
“Red Wine, French Toast, and The Best Sex You’ve Ever Had” is about six multifaceted performers who explore the concept of desire and disappointment in a comedic physical theatre show.
“Propylene Glycol, Maltodextrin, Retinol Palmitate, and Other Words I Don’t Understand Like Love” explores loss, loss of love, loss of illusions, and loss of inhibitions.
All three productions will take place at the Westbury Theatre in Old Strathcona.
