Mere hours before the opening of the perilous king crab fishing season, Danny, a young Newfoundlander arrives in Alaska, desperate for a job. A local fisherman, Cal, grudgingly agrees to help him out, but past & present collide when Lizzie, a feisty young woman, shows up. A modern fable steeped in maritime lore, The Out Vigil questions our ability to accept the natural world for all that it is, both beautiful and terrifying. With live music throughout the performance The Out Vigil takes on a bold new form of poetic naturalism that allows for a harmonious marriage of elements – fact and folklore, music and magic, the modern and the mythical.
Directed by Sabrina Evertt, with Dramaturgy by Peter Boychuk, this world premiere production features Matthew MacDonald-Bain as Danny, Stephanie Izsak as Lizzie & Zac Scott as Cal. Original Music by Julie McIsaac with Musicians Christina Cuglietta & Alison Jenkins. Set & Lighting Design by Ian Schimpf. Associate Costume & Props Design by Kaitlin Williams. Sound Design by Jay Clift. Stage Management by Melanie Thompson.
