A Burnaby theatre artist is looking for help to get a new production to the stage at the Vancouver Fringe Festival.
Dusty Foot Productions, the company founded by Alpha Secondary grad Patricia Trinh, is staging a new production called Red Glimmer at this fall’s Fringe. It’s set to run Sept. 5 to 15 at What Lab in East Vancouver.
Red Glimmer, described as a “suspenseful, abstract, sci-fi dramedy,” uses a non-linear plotline to tackle the theme of mental health. It follows two main characters: a woman who involuntarily takes an internal trip after falling into a deep depression, and a scientist hired to perform an experimental procedure, the Emotional Facelift, to eradicate the woman’s ability to re-experience emotional pain.
Written and directed by Trinh, it will star Marissa Burton as Woman and Alysson Hall as Scientist M4.66.
Tickets for the show are available online through tickets.vancouverfringe.com.
Dusty Foot Productions, an emerging, female and non-binary centric, interdisciplinary theatre company, is currently running a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the $3,000 cost of mounting the show.
