Lion in the Streets (PAST SHOW)

Friday, February 24, 2017 - 7:30pm to Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 3:00pm
Experimental Theater

Judith Thompson’s Lion in the Streets follows a young immigrant girl named Isobel. Murdered seventeen years before the play begins, Isobel’s ghost returns to the community where she grew up in search of her killer. She peers, unseen, into the intersecting lives of people in her hometown and observes as personal traumas and tragedies unfold. Events fragment and fracture, reality becomes blurred, foggy like a painful memory one struggles to piece together. Isobel weaves through the interconnected lives around her, trying desperately to find the lion hiding in the streets she once knew. Lion in the Streets is directed by Theater Arts MA candidate, Quest Sky Zeidler.
