Peg is a scientist studying a dying species of fly which lives on a rapidly dissolving glacier in the Rocky Mountains. Unsure of how to make a difference, she embarks on a desperate journey which propels her into a strange new universe. Exploring the terror of being overwhelmed in a changing world where our options seem to oscillate between panic and apathy, this new play melds contemporary issues with a science fiction epic inspired by Margaret Cavendish, one of the most unique female philosopher-poets in western history.
Directed and choreographed by Ryanne Chisholm. Featuring Dan Bray, Colleen MacIsaac, Noella Murphy, and Gina Thornhill. Set design by Katrin Whitehead, costume design by Jordyn F. Bochon, lighting design by Matthew Downey, sound design and original music by Jenny Trites, with stage management by Patricia Vinluan.
After its premiere at Neptune, the play will begin its touring life to the Saint Johns Theatre Company as part of their Canadian Stage series from June 1-2, 2018.
