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!

Palace of the End

“I’m beginning to think that it’s the greatest sin of our time. Knowing and pretending we don’t know…”

Palace of the End raises the bar…beautifully specific writing…packs a mean punch…as quietly unforgettable as it is purposely rending.

LA Times Critics Choice

Recently nominated for the Governor General’s Award, Judith Thompson’s arresting new play gives a face to three key figures whose lives were transformed by the Iraq War crisis: Lynndie England, the U.S. soldier convicted of abusing detainees at Abu Ghraib; Dr. David Kelly, the British weapons inspector who allegedly committed suicide after involvement in a government scandal, and Nehrjas Al Saffarh, a member of the Communist Party of Iraq who suffered under Saddam Hussein’s regime. Courageous, hard-hitting and utterly compelling, Palace of the End is winner of the prestigious 2008 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
