Help us bring the new Roxy to life

On January 13, 2015 Theatre Network lost their home of The Roxy Theatre – which left a hole in the arts community and on 124 Street in Edmonton.

Now, Theatre Network is working to bring a New Roxy Theatre back where it belongs.

We need your generosity to Rebuild the Roxy Theatre. With your financial support the New Roxy will rise from the ashes!

The Third Ascent

“What I find most striking now… is the absolute hypocrisy of those who would judge us. To them of course, I am nothing but a criminal and a war mongerer. And our decision the inevitable result of a military machine gone mad. Do they really think a decision of this magnitude could be made so callously?”

This is Moher's most flamboyantly theatrical show yet.

Edmonton Sun

A theatrically vivid depiction of Henry Stimson, US Secretary of War under FDR and later Harry Truman, and the man most responsible for the bombing of Hiroshima. He was also an avid mountain-climber, and the play moves rapidly between the events leading up to the bombing and a series of ascents of Great Chief Mountain in Southern Alberta, to investigate the question of how a good man becomes involved in a horrific deed. Part of the Carlton Theatre Trail Exchange.
