HALO presented by Fire Exit Theatre. Engineered Air Theatre, Epcor Centre for Performing Arts. Wednesday, October 8, 2014. Runs until Sunday, October 12, 2014. $20-$25
Fire Exit Theatre presents
Written by Josh MacDonald
Directed by Mark Lewandowski
Calgary’s Fire Exit Theatre proudly presents the firs show of Lucky Season Thirteen, HALO by Nova Scotian playwright, Josh MacDonald. Running October 8th – 12th, 2014 at the Engineered Air Theatre –Epcor Centre.
When an image of Jesus appears on the side of a Tim Horton’s restaurant in Nately, Nova Scotia, life is forever changed. The town’s inhabitants are challenged to ask difficult questions about faith, life and love with sometimes moving, sometimes hilarious results. Complicating the matter, of course, are the more mundane questions of whether this appearance is a miracle, an accident, or quite possibly even a hoax.
At the center of this wickedly entertaining play resides the more existential and personal question of what has happened to our notion of meaning and ethics in the strip-mall culture of concrete and crass competition which has replaced a more pastoral and rural life.
Halo is a brilliant examination of the need to believe and the power of forgiveness
