a drive-in theatre experience
by Geoffrey Simon Brown

How do you keep your humanity when every instinct tells you to run free and howl at the moon? Night imagines a reality where human connection struggles against animal ferocity in the eyes of someone desperately seeking a way to feel at home with themselves.

This story of compulsive transformation, control versus wildness is told by solo performer Zoë Glassman, directed by Yousuf Liepert, designed by Elise CM Jason, and choreographed by Clarke Blair with an original soundscape by Liv McRobbie. Pull up to our secret performance location, set your radios to receive our audio transmission, and prepare to enter the darkness.

Night runs at a secret outdoor location June 17-20 and 24-26 at 10:00pm. Tickets are extremely limited.

About the Major Matt Mason Collective:
The Major Matt Mason Collective (MMMC) is a collection of interdisciplinary, Alberta-based artists presenting new, established, and collectively generated plays since 2010. Our mandate is to engage young audiences who haven’t had a strong relationship with the performing arts, to provide mentorship and development to young, up and coming artists, and to find innovative approaches to performance that make theatre an exciting and relevant experience. We tackle high-risk, socially charged projects, challenging our audience and ourselves to engage in dialogue on current social issues.
