A philosopher once called theatre “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $12, you get a ticket (up to a $24 value) to Meat Puppet, presented by Northern Light Theatre and Shadow Theatre. The play contains strong language and adult themes, and is recommended for play-goers 15 and older. The production will be performed at the Varscona Theatre in Old Strathcona. Choose from five dates:
- Sunday, January 23 at 2 p.m.
- Wednesday, January 26 at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, January 30 at 2 p.m.
- Wednesday, February 2 at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, February 6 at 2 p.m.
Northern Light Theatre and Shadow Theatre present a play that zeroes in on the increasingly relevant Venn diagram of reality, television, and reality television. Chuck Dalmer seeks to put his befallen investigative TV show back on the map by unveiling the salacious happenings in the life of a celebrity. Dalmer’s producer and a YouTube phenom construct hairy roadblocks along Dalmer’s pursuit of modern media relevance.
