Curtains up!

Black Hole Theatre season opens on November 17

November 17, 2015 — 

The Black Hole Theatre Company raises its curtains on the 2015-16 season on November 17.

The company is performing a double-bill from November 17-21st and the 24-28th .

The Bald Soprano tells the story of a family and their friends who are joined by a maid and a fire chief in a relatively normal conversation. As the show progresses, the family finds out they’re being deceived by the strangers.

The Bald Soprano is the first play written by one of France’s most celebrated playwrights, Eugene Ionesco. It is directed by senior student, Brook Pluta. Pluta is also an apprentice director at the Winnipeg Studio Theatre.

After Magritte is a show about a group of people all posing exactly like a painting from a Belgian painter, Rene Magritte. No matter how unlikely it seems, everyone is in the picture for a reason.

The show is written by Tom Stoppard and directed by senior student, Margaret Fergusson. Fergusson was an assistant director for The Aristrocrats in 2014. She also directed Central Park West at the 2015 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.
