ISOLDE_F9A0317

Tristan and Isolde is a legend of tragedy and of love. Richard Maxwell has taken this legend and put it under a contemporary lens in Isolde, presented by Theatre Junction Grand. Maxwell spins the story into a modern tale of an artistic architect Massimo (Gary Wilmes) who is having an affair with Isolde (Tory Vazquez) while designing her dream house for her and her husband Patrick (Jim Fletcher).

Isolde at Theatre Junction – Feb 10 – 13, 2016

Theatre Junction is proud to present ISOLDE direct from New York City on February 10, 11, 12 and 13th. Get your tickets now!

Isolde, a famous actress who once inspired passion and worship, is foundering. She is unable to remember the lines that fueled her greatest roles. Additionally, Isolde is losing her past and all her memories. In an attempt to escape her fate, Isolde decides to create her dream house – a fortress to protect her fragility, a project that her wealthy, down-to-earth contractor husband, Patrick, encourages to distract her. The project is soon jeopardized, when Isolde and her husband hire Massimo, an award-winning architect. [click to continue…]

I especially enjoy going to events that have a fundraising component and supporting organizations that are doing important and worthwhile things in our city – helping to enrich our culture, being one of them, is why I’ve been attending Glenbow Museum’s Schmancy for the past few years. But I would be fibbing if I didn’t admit to also being drawn to said events thanks to the amazing speakers that they’ve brought in over the years, and this year none other than one of my favourite fashionistas, Jeanne Beker!

Fire Exit Theatre’s Artistic Director Val Lieske heard about Ingrid de Sanctis from a mutual friend and he said that Ingrid was the American version of Lieske. “She used to work in a large church and I work in a church, she has a theatre company and I have a theatre company, she teaches at the University and I teach at a University and she has a play about cancer and I have a play about cancer,” Lieske explains. And so Lieske contacted de Sanctis and now Fire Exit Theatre is presenting Sarah and the Dinosaur.  [click to continue…]
