Catherine Banks' Bone Cage
Thu, Oct 5, 2017 at 8pm - Sun, Oct 15, 2017 at 10pm
Presented by Matchstick Theatre, Catherine Banks’ Bone Cage opens at the Bus Stop Theatre this October.
For the ten-year anniversary of the award-winning show’s premiere in 2007, Bone Cage will run October 5th-8th and 12th – 15th at 8:00pm, with Pay What You Can 2:00pm Sunday matinees. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students, seniors, underwaged, and Bus Stop Co-op members) and can be booked in advance through Ticket Halifax, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set against the backdrop of the forestry industry, Bone Cage takes a hard look at the lives of seven people in rural Nova Scotia. Each of the intensely relatable and complex characters is looking to escape, but will their pasts, circumstances, or relationships allow it? It is a bleak, real, and identifiable play that pulls no punches. Bone Cage stars Taylor Olson, Jessy Matthews, Katie Dorian, Sam Vigneault, Sebastien Labelle, Kyle Gillis, and Hermione Davis. The play is directed by Jake Planinc, stage managed by Chelsea Dickie, produced by Alex Mills, and designed by Wesley Babcock and Alison Crosby. Poster Design by Lindsay Laltoo.
