CUE Faculty at the Fringe

Posted on: Aug 15, 2018

The Fringe Theatre Festival starts this week and two CUE drama instructors are collaborating on the premiere of Rig Pig Fantasia. The show’s producer and designer is Michael Peng who teaches acting and public speaking and was recently on our stage as C.S. Lewis in Freud’s Last Session. The writer and director is Chris Bullough who directed A Midsummer Night’s Dream for us in 2016.

The show produced by Chris and Mike’s company Wishbone Theatre promises to be thought provoking and entertaining:

Three Albertans find themselves locked in an epic battle between Industry and the environment: An oil worker with a burgeoning artistic side. An oil worker determined to succeed on his own terms no matter the cost, and an eco-advocate from a blue-blooded oil family.

When words fail, they dance.
