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 to L'Effet de Serge at Theatre Junction Grand. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $14, you get one ticket to a show on either Wednesday, April 6 or Thursday, April 7 (a $29.20 value).
- For $17, you get one ticket to a show on either Friday, April 8 or Saturday, April 9 (a $35.50 value).
A thoroughly contemporary company, Theatre Junction Grand provides a platform for eclectic performers and visionaries to converge and unleash their bold ideas and art forms. With L'Effet de Serge, Vivarium Studio's acclaimed Parisian play imparts the tale of Serge, an eccentric who stages weekly performances for his chums centred on homemade special effects. Lead by Gaetan Vourc'h as Serge, the remainder of the cast is rounded out by uncoached local actors to lend performances a sense of realism. Supported by the Consulate of France in Calgary and Institute Français, the show is further enriched by the whimsical stage design, providing audience members with a pleasurable visual experience. Seating is first come, first serve, so arrive early to avoid sitting chained to Jabba the Hut for the duration of the production.
