Conspiracy gets obstructed!

Tim Carlson receiving Obstructions

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.
