The Upstart Festival is a bi-annual one act play festival run by uWaterloo Drama students presenting original and innovative works of theatre. This year all 8 shows have been produced, directed and acted by uWaterloo students with seven out of the eight plays being original works. Upstart 14 features a wide range of performance styles including comedy, drama, movement-based theatre and commedia dell’arte.
A list of the shows for this evening:
Crows in Dream Time (the biggest Murder) by Sam Beuerle is a work of highly physical and text-based theatre, exploring the way dreams and thoughts can be portrayed on the stage.
Signs of Life by Derek McGill follows Brock, who seems to have no positive outlook on his awkward teenage life. But all he really needs is just a good lesson in driving, a bit of confidence, and to learn to follow the signs: the signs of life!
Fake Plastic Trees by Alan Shonfield is a play about semantics, metaphors, Hamlet, Keanu Reeves, love and Margaret Atwood.
Come out and enjoy a wide variety of theatre, and support original, student created works at Upstart 14: Festival of Innovative Theatre!
