Point of View Ensemble Presents: A Very Special Election
Hosted by Inside Out Theatre
Inside Out Theatre's POV ensemble is proud to present a new digital performance:
Did you think we were done with Elections in Calgary? Think again! A disgraced City Councillor is kicked our of city hall after it’s revealed he bribed a zookeeper to pet a penguin (spoiler alert…. The penguin died). A special election is called. Candidates debate, media personalities rant, protesters protest, civil servants try and keep some semblance of order.
Who will win this very special election? That’s up to you dear audience turned voter. Following the candidate debate our live, at home audiences will be able to cast their vote and choose their candidate.
The Point of View Ensemble, Inside Out’s resident new play creators, have dove deep into everything that could possibly go wrong in an election, and found hope along the way in imaging a future Calgary that’s, depending on the candidate, safe and inclusive or ruled by robots!
Created by and starring the POV: Adrian Houghton Brittany Orlita Damon Lawson Gaelyn Thomson Jennifer Stewart Meighan Wong Mike Keir Richard Pepler
Directed by Col Cseke, Jeremy Park, Michelle Brandenburg and Riki Entz
