The Somewhere Cedar
— A teen revolutionaries fight to save the oldest known Western Red Cedar in BC.
Meet Antigone, a teen with a melancholic reverence for the beauty and tragedy of the world. She’s locked in the bathroom of her Uncle’s logging trailer, dirty, exhausted, and in complete darkness. With her flashlight, the innards of her childhood music box, evidence recorded on her phone, and a fresh piece of cedar, she must convince the logger guarding the door to let her get back to the oldest known Western Red Cedar in BC, and stop the destruction of all that she knows to be right.
This 15 minute adaptation of Antigone (an ancient Greek p...lay) takes place in a janitor's closet tucked away in the depths of the Cultch, for an audience of no more than 4. The performances occur on the hour and on the 1/2 hour, and you can reserve your FREE tickets at the link below. You can also show up in the lobby of the Cultch before or after your other rEvolver events, and hope for a space!
