The 2018 rEvolver Festival shows are getting RAVE REVIEWS!
Two actors perform Shakespeare’s Macbeth… without words! A dance theatre duet full of charm and laughs! An award-winning Fringe duo tackle the near-post-apocolyptic future! Week 2 of the rEvolver Festival has begun with more incredible shows!
Rave reviews are heating up the rEvolver Festival stage, with Jo Ledingham Theatre Reviews saying “See it!” for La Fille du Laitier’s Macbeth Muet and the Georgia Straight praising writer/director/actor Elysse Cheadle as “wickedly clever” for Fuchsia Future.
Macbeth Muet (La Fille du Laitier- Montreal)
“Mostly it’s the most wildly imaginative take on the Scottish play I’ve ever seen. See it!” ~ Jo Ledingham
“Macbeth Muet is one of the most innovative shows you’ll see this season” ~ Colin Thomas
“…. inventive and oxygenating tiny-cast retelling of Macbeth… sent me back onto the street refreshed, energized and pretty charmed as well” ~ New York Times
Fuchsia Future (Elysse Cheadle, Vancouver)
“Fuchsia Future is packed with these laugh-out-loud moments, and yet it never shies away from its dark side either…Unpretentious and experimental, with a huge heart and a wickedly clever brain, Cheadle is the writer, producer, and colead actor of Fuchsia Future, one of the strangest and most bizarre local plays in recent memory” ~ Andrea Warner, Georgia Straight
Kitt and Jane (SNAFU, Victoria)
“ABSOLUTELY GENIUS. Flawless comedic timing, dynamic physicality, and a beautiful and complex friendship.” ~ New Ottawa Critics
“THIS PLAY IS GOLD. An unexpected roller-coaster of an evening, with whimsical humour, manic energy, and intelligence. You will not leave this show in a bad mood.” ~ West of West
