Théâtre Cercle Molière
Directed by Ardith Boxall
Production Dramaturg and Artistic Collaborator – Andraea Sartison
A new play commissioned by Theatre Projects Manitoba, Five Moments is a thrilling hybrid of domestic fabulism, time travel, and story theatre.
Phoebe and Jack are married. They have had a child. They have been very happy. They have had their sorrows. Phoebe and Jack have a time machine. And they are re-evaluating spending the rest of their lives together.
Five Moments experiments with new forms in this playful, searing “what if” scenario of love and loss.
Rick Chafe – Five Moments is Rick’s third play for Theatre Projects after co-writing last season’s TPM/One Trunk Theatre presentation multi-media sci-fi graphic novel for stage, Red Earth, as well as The Last Man and Woman on Earth. Rick’s plays have been produced across the country, including Strike! co-written with Danny Schur (Rainbow Stage), Marriage: A Demolition in Two Acts and The Secret Mask (PTE), Shakespeare’s Dog (RMTC/NAC), The Odyssey (SIR) and Beowulf (Two Planks and a Passion).
