The Hudson Bay Epic sets sail to the Calgary Fringe Theatre Festival!

In an action packed journey, Calgary’s quirky collective, Frivolous Fools Performance, takes on one of Canada’s most significant historic events and turns it on its head.

This show received rave reviews in Winnipeg, being described as “Inventive and invigorating.” by CBC Manitoba.

Using their set as a musical instrument, Frivolous Fools merge fact, fiction and fantasy to reveal a forbidden romance amongst the hostile backdrop of Henry Hudson’s ice locked expedition to find the Northwest Passage. As language moves between prose, rhyme and song, three actors jump between ten characters while creating a live soundscape on an acoustic ship made out of junk!

Don’t miss one of the guaranteed highlights of the Calgary Fringe Festival by checking them out at The Lantern Community Church Sanctuary (1401 10 Ave SE) at the following show times:

Sat Aug 2 @ 6:30 pm
Sun Aug 3 @ 12:30 pm
