Dr. Bennett’s career is one dotted with disappointment, failure, and ridicule. But the shocking discovery of a living specimen of the legendary “mermaids of Lake Minnewanka” is certain to turn that career, and the entire scientific community, upside down. But as we witness the journey that led to the discovery, study, and the shocking revelation to the scientific world, we learn that lines drawn between science and ambition are as deep and dark as the waters of Lake Minnewanka itself. Chelsea Fawcett’s “Jaan”, directed by Dan Gibbins, is certain to tease, taunt, and entertain while leaving you desperate for answers that may never come.

War is peace. Ignorance is strength. Thought is crime. George Orwell’s acclaimed work gives a harrowing warning of a dystopian future which, sadly, has become all too familiar. With the rise of nationalism across Europe and now in America, what better time to retell the warnings this story shares about a desperate future that we all hope to avoid, yet seem inexorably drawn towards.
Adapted for the stage by Michael Gene Sullivan, and directed by Matt Pickering. Be sure to witness an unforgettable night at the theatre, and remember: Big Brother is watching!
