What do you get when you cross a man who wants to fight God, an autodidactic
shaman, a spectral Louis Riel and a girl who is pretty sure she is the only sane person left in the world? You get The Crying Game 2. Just kidding. You get Gargamel, a tragic comedy written by Trent Wilkie (MWT), directed by Mike Robertson (Highwire Films/Rapid Fire Theatre), videos by Jason Ludwig (MWT) and stage managed by ErinVoaklander. Starring Wilkie, Matt Stanton, Craig Buchert, Joleen Ballendine and Ellen Chorley, Gargamel is the product of an Alberta Foundation for the Arts grant and a love of fictionalizing history. With a cast that has experience performing and writing for CBC Radio, TheatreNetwork, Fringe Festivals all over Canada and countless stages in
Edmonton, Gargamel will leave you enlightened, laughing and engaged.
