Festival Players Presents
Festival Players Presents will extend our activities into the Fall and Winter months and feature an all-Canadian lineup of presentations both in The Storefront and venues throughout The County. The series will kick off with a bang in September with:
An Eldritch Theatre Production
Created and Performed by Eric Woolfe
Originally directed by Dylan Trowbridge
Designed by Melanie McNeill
September 26 – October 1 | The Storefront, 310 Main Street Wellington
A highly original creation from the mind of Eric Woolfe, nominated for Best New Play and Best Performance at the 2017 Dora Mavor Moore Awards. The Harrowing of Brimstone McReedy is a critically acclaimed, mostly true Old Time Terror yarn of a Grifter, the Devil, and cursed Klondike Gold. Told with puppets, con games, and dark parlour magic!
“NNNN… Eric Woolfe’s magic-infused puppet show about a Klondike Gold Rush era con man is a sure bet.” – NOW Magazine
“In the world of punk-tinged, Victorian gothic puppeteering, Eric Woolfe must rank near the very top.” – The Globe and Mail
Additional programming will be announced on an ongoing basis. Festival Players Presents is made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
