NOW PLAYING AT THE VORTEX
PosterWail
A New Physical Theatre Performance | Devised by The Gale Theatre Co. Ensemble
Oct.31-Nov.15, 2014 Thursday- Sunday, 8pm
What makes a great tragedy? High hopes? Hard luck? Harrowing, inevitable fate? Gale Theatre Co. set out to explore the secrets of tragedy and, along the way, made a play about it. Part hero’s journey and part never ending stair case, Wail asks the question, how do we bare our humanity—humanely?

When a young woman arrives in an unfamiliar and strange town, she can’t remember where she came from or how she got there. Time passes, seasons change, and she assumes a new life. As she learns more about the outside world, she also slowly discovers the horrors of her past. Painful realities and dreams collide in this lyrical drama.

Directed by Katherine Wilkinson, Text by Sarah Loucks, Choreographed by Celina Chapin, Created by the Gale Theatre Ensemble. Featuring: Kimberly Gifford, Ja’Michael Darnell, Mary Catherine, Tim Mateer, and Olivia Jimenez. Scenic & Costume Design by Zoey Cane Belyea, Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony, Technical Direction by Zac Crofford, Produced by Gale Theatre Co. & The VORTEX
