MEDIA RELEASE

rEvolver Theatre Festival 2018
May 23-June 3, 2018
The Cultch, 1895 Venables Street, Vancouver
Early bird festival passes available now, single tickets on sale April 1

Main stage show highlights include a humorous, vulgar, candid, and beautiful investigation into incest in 12 Minute Madness, and the struggle of the abused young woman. A solo performance, bug, shows how the women in an Indigenous family grapple with a painful past. Two actors perform the entirety of Macbeth without words in Macbeth Muet. A nihilistic musical, Fuchsia Future is a tale about a family driven absurd by a tragic loss, and The Only Good Indian asks what it would take to get you into a suicide vest.
