YUKONSTYLE

by sarah bérthiaume //  translated by nadine desrochers // directed by ted witzel //  premiered october 2013 at canadian stage


three unlikely roommates are enduring the harsh whitehorse winter as the 2007 robert pickton murder trial plays out on the tv. YUKONSTYLE is a play for the new generation of canadians who are less concerned with what it means to be "canadian" than they are with how to get by in this country of mountains, bison, fast food, serial killers, and snow.


 
whitehorse. night. winter. minus 45 degrees celsius. the threshold between cold and death. shouldn’t have gotten off. should have stayed on the bus one more night. climb higher still. get lost even deeper in the mountains, the fumes, the bison herds, and the A&Ws. but — whitehorse.

directed by ted witzel.  set and costume design by gillian gallow.  lighting design by bonnie beecher.  sound design by richard feren. video design by cameron davis.  stage management by marcie januska.  performed by kate corbett, ryan cunningham, françois klanfer, & grace-lynn kung.
