Bone Wars by Matthew MacKenzie
April 20–30, 2017
in the Backstage Theatre
Just south of the Arctic Circle sits a factory filled with scientists and engineers and data entry clerks and managers who are faced with the daily task of trying to create a machine that will destroy the world. All was going well until this morning, when Susan had an unfortunate breakthrough. A musical comedy about the end of the world.When eleven year olds Tickailia, Dawn, Chelsea, Rudeger and their babysitter/Palaeontology PhD candidate Lequian are forced to abandon their canoe trip down the Red Deer River and take refuge in an abandoned mine in the Badlands to wait out a tornado, they become embroiled in a historical quarrel; who was the greatest Palaeontologist of them all?
While waiting for the tornado to pass, a trial ensues as Othniel Marsh and Edward Cope, the world’s most legendary dinosaur bone hunters, vie for Palaeontology supremacy. Tickailia and company play unwitting judge and jury, along with a host of Wild West characters who are called upon to be the pathological Palaeontologists’ witnesses. When the tornado passes, Tickailia and her friends will walk out into the world determined to not allow the insanity of the Bone Wars to repeat itself; because in the end, neither Marsh nor Cope was the winner—both were losers. Just as our society’s insatiable appetite for fossil fuels pushes our world toward catastrophe, so too did these dinosaur bone hunters’ insatiable appetite for fossils fuel their demise.Buy Tickets Now

Jasper is a damaged soul living in the urban core. In fear of what he is capable of, he has imposed a state of exile upon himself. He lives alone, and has boarded himself in: in part to protect himself against external evils; in part to protect innocents from his own predatory potential.Buy Tickets Now
