None of This Is Happening by Ellen Peterson
TPM has always been the home of Manitoba Playwrights and we couldn’t be more pleased to bring you this World Premiere by Winnipeg treasure, Ellen Peterson. This apocalyptic fable follows a trio of aging ex-vaudevillians who are inextricably tied together even as they goad each other to the brink. A play about garbage, longing, Niagara Falls, and our inescapable interconnectedness–for better and worse. It’s the end of the world seen through the incomparable imaginative lens of one of Winnipeg’s finest playwrights.
Featuring a stellar team of local artists, Alissa Watson (The Paper Bag Princess – PTE, founding member of The Red Nose Diaries and The Talentless Lumps), directs Monique Marcker (Albertine in Five Times, The Elmwood Visitation, North Main Gothic), Simon Miron (A Winter’s Tale – SIR, Orlando – RMTC, Artistic Director of the Village Conservatory), and Jane Testar (Winter’s Tale – SIR, founding member of Outside Joke, and Hot Thespian Action) with Assistant Director Carol-Ann Bohrn, and designers Joyce Licup, Brenda McLean, Ksenia Broda-Milian, and Emma Hendrix.
