In a play that the Calgary Herald says “balances smart and heart,” two seemingly unrelated plots weave together themes of science, faith, and fate. In one of them, a professor losing her sight gets a visit from a former student as she’s searching for the cause of her blindness. In the other, an author who has predicted the outcomes of the last 19 coin tosses at the Super Bowl meets a formidable opponent: a pregnant young woman. Arun Lakra’s riveting drama has won widespread acclaim, including taking top honors at the 2011 Alberta Playwriting Competition.
Shadow Theatre champions up-and-coming playwrights all while putting on plays from around the world. The results speak for themselves, with perfect theatrical diction—several pieces have received honors including the Sterling Award for Outstanding New Play, the Samuel French Award for Outstanding New Canadian Play, and the Outstanding New Alberta Play Award. Previous productions include Underneath the Lintel, 3 Days of Rain, Grace, While My Mother Lay Dreaming, and Sexy Laundry; this season’s plays include Sequence and Circle Mirror Transformation.
