Rose Scollard’s bizzare trilogy takes you into the Twilight Zone of male/female relationships. The three plays in the trilogy are Nosey Parkers – which sees hot shot executive Harry entertained by lady of the evening Qunicy – The Swapper – which asks us what we might be willing to swap for the realization of our unspoken desires – and The Hero – the mystical story of Nichola, who, tired of dismissing her soul and relinquishing her strengths in order to be the ideal of womanly femininity, decides to become one with the suppressed “creature” inside her.

CAST & CREW
Christine is very pleased to be back in Edmonton at Theatre Network. The last time she appeared on this stage was in Judith Thompson’s PERFECT PIE, directed by Marianne Copithorne. Recently Christine has been living and working in Saskatchewan where she works primarily in film and television. Recent credits include CBC’s THE VELVET DEVIL and THE TOMMY DOUGLAS STORY and recurring roles in APTN’s RENEGADEPRESS.COM and MOCCASIN FLATS, the feature film MOVE CLOSER and the play I LICKED A SLAGS DEODERANT for Wildside Productions. You may remember Christine from days gone by as a staple of the Edmonton Theatre scene for many years. She then went off to Toronto where she became a Huge Star ! – but, alas the trappings of the celebrity life were overwhelming and it brought her back out west to her roots and her beloved Edmonton Oilers.
