Energize Your Soul

"The inspiration for this season is about the triumph of the human spirit. No matter who you are or where you come from, we’ve all had to overcome some sort of adversity. The gift of theatre is its ability to move, touch, and inspire an audience through storytelling. Stories let us share situations in a way that creates an emotional connection with the characters on the stage, and inevitably with ourselves and our lives. The power of those connections gives space for us to realize that on a human level, we are all basically the same. We love, we laugh, we hurt, we learn."

- Stafford Arima, Artistic Director

Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer

by Kevin Loring

Directed by Kevin Loring

And when you invite a coyote into the coop, they may just walk off with your chickens. This biting new satire by Governor General’s Award-winning playwright Kevin Loring will leave you with plenty to talk about after the lights come up.

Theatre Calgary is proud to present this show as a joint presentation with Making Treaty 7.
