The first show of the first Devised Theatre Festival is outLET, created, performed and produced by The Catalyst Project.
outLET is a 50-minute multimedia experience that explores the consequences of violating the social contracts that govern our lives. Five young people come to a house of illusions to enact their deepest desires – dreams of power, sex, violence, death, and immortality. But what happens when the game changes, the rules disappear, and fantasy becomes reality?
outLETwill run in ACE 207 on:
Thursday, March 14 at 7:30 (PWYC preview) |
Friday, March 15 at 7:30 |
Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 and 7:30 | Email yorkdt2013@gmail.com to reserve a ticket and you can pick it up/pay at the door.
