If you have been following Progress Lab’s Obstructions series, you’ve had a taste of the companies in Progress Lab at their craftiest. Over a one-year period, a group of Vancouver theatre companies challenge each other to create work built around custom-designed limitations. The result is unlike anything you’ve seen from that company before.
On July 28, following a performance of Radix’s farcical feast in carrot kingdom at PL1422, Tim Carlson took the hotseat and received Theatre Conspiracy’s obstructions with measured calm.
Conspiracy must now devise a theatre piece that meets the following criteria:
1. Cast of the piece must include at least one woman over the age of 60.
2. Theatre Conspiracy must create a romantic love story (without irony).
3. The subject matter of the piece must celebrate Walmart (without irony).
Curious to see what we make of it? Our show happens December 1 at PL1422. We’ll let you know when tickets become available.
