TORGUS AND SNOW

By Australian-American playwright Christine Evans

A talking vacuum cleaner, a child-turned-machine, and malevolent trolls interweave in a Nordic fever-dream inspired by Sweden’s “apathetic children” – young refugees who fall into coma-like states when faced with deportation.

*** Pre-show Forum with the Swedish Embassy on 9/21 from 2 p.m.-2:45 p.m. followed by reception; Post-Show Talk at 5:30 p.m. with the Playwright & Director, leading into Light Dinner, and next show.
