The Starving Time by The Deep End Collective presented by Theatre Junction

June 7, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - June 10, 2018 @ 10:30 pm MDT

Inspired by evidence found in 2013 that definitively proved the settlers in Jamestown had resorted to cannibalism in the face of freezing temperatures and the onset of starvation, The Starving Time is an exploration of what it really means to be hungry.

The need to fill ourselves up, to consume, to suppress. 

A poetic piece of theatrical writing, The Starving Time is lyrical and non-linear. Is this Jamestown? Is this New Canada? Is this another world?

Originally developed through the Alberta Playwrights’ Network and the RBC Emerging Artists Mentorship Program.
