The Uncanny comes to the Bus Stop

The Uncanny, When Fantasy is Too Real

3 New Short Plays inspired by Fairy Tales- Bus Stop Theatre Aug4th-7th

Taboo Theatre is excited to present a series of 3 original short plays at the Bus Stop Theatre this August! 

Once Upon a Time can be so inspiring.
We can look at these fantastical worlds, yet still see ourselves in them.
We can measure our world by it and re-write the ending as we please.
We can play and joke and be silly and carefree.
We can go places we would never allow ourselves to go.
And that is exactly what we are doing.

Asleep at the Wheel by Jordan Hall
Directed by Zara Tufts
A dab of privilege, a spoonful of promises and a touch of despair.
Locked in a cell, bribed with the “happily ever after”, two young women are expected to turn on each other. Can sisterhood survive?

Marriedest One of All by Jenn Dlugos and Charlie Hatton
Directed by Andrea Dymond*
A dab of pride, a spoonful of husbands and a touch of jealousy.
Hilarious and irreverent , this comedy follows The Evil Queen as she fights for yet another title stolen from her by Snow White: The Marriedest One of All!

Hansel in Lederhosen by Hal Corley
Directed by Luciana S. Fernandes
A dab of kink, a spoonful of incest and a touch of familiarity.
In this uncomfortably irresistible dark comedy, a Halifax director holds auditions for his new hush-hush experimental play and is blown away by an oddly mysterious actress, who understands what he is looking for almost too well.
