Kindergarten teacher and refugee face fear and find love
The University of Manitoba Theatre Program is gearing up to present its third and final mainstage show of the 2019-2020 season
The University of Manitoba Theatre Program is gearing up to present their third and final mainstage show of the 2019-2020 season. They are proud to present Capture Me by Judith Thompson, directed by Robyn Hasselstrom.
Capture Me focuses on Geraldine (Jerry), a junior kindergarten teacher, who falls in love with a mysterious, Arabic refugee and tries to connect with her estranged biological mother, all while being hunted down by her monstrously abusive ex-husband. Capture Me not only fights to free its characters from their confines, but also to free the audience from their own limits of perspective.
Robyn Hasselstrom, current senior Theatre student, directs this thrilling all-student production. Hasselstrom chose this script due to the transformative power of the celebrated Canadian playwright’s text and the impact of Capture Me’s story.
After the outstanding success of their recent production of Macbeth, the Theatre Program hopes to amaze and delight audiences one more time with their third mainstage show of the year. Capture Me runs from March 11 – 21, in the John J. Conklin Theatre at the Gail Asper Performing Arts Hall in the Taché Arts Complex. All shows are performed at 7:30 pm, except for a 2:00 pm matinee on Sunday, March 15.
