Tibb's Eve by Step Taylor - Resource Centre for the Arts St.John's
November 30 - December 3

Unbeknownst to him, it is Tibb’s Eve and there’s a shed party on the go that is definitely full of booze, drugs, and distractions, but may also contain traces of otherworldly mischief, magic, and transformation. On this seductively chaotic “night that doesn’t exist” in the middle of nowhere, Trevor and friends (both old and new) will either face the consequences of their choices, or utterly abandon life as they know it.  Starring – Colin Furlong, Allison Kelly, Mark Power and Miranda Power. Creative Team – Courtney Brown (Director), Step Taylor (Playwright), Kaitlin Hickey (Production Designer), Brian Kenny (Composer & Sound Designer) and Crystal Laffoley (Company Manager).
