This fall, the UBC Players Club is co-producing a show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival: The Orbweaver, by Mexican playwright and UBC alumnus Paula Zelaya Cervantes, running from September 9-18th on the Revue Stage!
First conceived in 2014, this play has since been developed extensively in Mexico. We are thrilled to be presenting this international production to a Canadian audience alongside Once Once Producciones and the Quimera Theatre Collective.
A black comedy and twisted Mexican fairy tale all rolled into one, The Orbweaver tells the story of a boy and girl who fall in love. The girl is a lover of all things lively and bright, while the boy is Death’s own personal assistant. They can only be together when someone dies. Shadow puppets, magic and murder will all combine in this exciting showcase of international talent!
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in the year ahead!
