Following the final show of our core season, we will once again present the work of an aspiring young director. The RBC Emerging Director’s Showcase is a unique opportunity for Lunchbox Theatre to provide mentorship to an emerging artist, and for our audiences to have the opportunity to see the work of Calgary’s next great director.
The 2019 RBC Emerging Director’s Showcase:
Care Takers by Billy Cowan
Directed by Kathryn Smith
A new teacher at a rigid British high school is disturbed by the possibility that a pupil is being bullied because of his sexuality. In the absence of concrete evidence, an ambitious deputy principal refuses to take action. Separated by motive, ideologies, and years of experience, these two women engage in an emotional and intellectual battle over the school system and the safeties it should provide to the most vulnerable among us. This intense two-hander has no easy answers as we confront the explosive tensions between protocol and reality.
