Twenty years after its first English performance, Les guerriers Co-op brings Warriors back to Calgary audiences from April 15 - May 2 at The Studio at Vertigo Theatre.
Warriors was originally written in French (as Les guerriers) by Governor General's Award-winning playwright Michel Garneau, and presented at L’Atelier du Centre national des Arts in 1989. This is the 20th anniversary of the first English performance, which was produced by Alberta Theatre Projects at the playRites ’90 Festival.
Les guerriers is a cooperative of professional local theatre artists formed for the sole purpose of presenting Warriors to Calgary audiences. The production brings co-stars Andy Curtis and Patrick Creery together with Director Trevor Rueger, Stage Manager Michael Howard, Lighting Designer David Smith and, doing double-duty, Assistant Director/Set Designer Terry Gunvordahl. Gunvordahl also provides a connection to the original English presentation as he designed the set for the playRites production two decades ago.
“It’s not a play that attacks the men and women of the military, but a play that questions the underlying motives of war and how war is 'sold' to us like a commodity,” says Director Trevor Rueger. “It’s a war of ideas and words are the weapons.”
Performances of Warriors begin Thursday, April 15 with opening night on Friday, April 16. Tickets are $25 or $15 for students and seniors, and can be purchased by phone at 403 221-3708 or online at WarriorsThePlay.com. All matinees are “Pay What You Can” performances.
Media Call — Thursday, April 15, 1:00pm at The Studio, Vertigo Theatre Centre, 161 - 115 9 Ave S.E.
