Previews: April 30 @ 8pm
Opens: May 1 @ 8pm runs until May 17 @ 8pm
All Tuesdays are Talk Back Tuesdays with the artists!
Ever feel as though you blinked for a moment and the world completely changed? Imagine the plight of Randall Irving Parson (Rip) whose mysterious encounter with a ghostly crew leads him to fall asleep in a snowbank and stay frozen for over a century. Rip'd from the fabric of time, this young man returns home to recapture the life he lost, but can he? All has changed and yet all is the same... WTF?
Set in Canada's North, Rip! A Winkle in Timeis loosely inspired by the fable of Rip Van Winkle that was published in 1819. Our legend has a real-time eerie tie to the modern world.
Under the direction of Wayne Specht and Kathryn Bracht, Rip! A Winkle in Time, is Axis’ first adult mainstage creation in over 10 years and features four of Vancouver’s top performers: Annette Devick, Stefano Giulianetti, Tara Travis and Simon Webb.
Conceived and Written by KC Brown with the Rip! Creative Collective. Sound Design by Bob Buckley, Lighting Design by Darren Boquist, Set |Costume| Prop Design by Naomi Sider and Stage Managed by Lucy Pratt-Johnson.
