Tell us about The Trophy Hunt.

A rolling world premiere being performed in five Canadian cities, The Trophy Hunt is a dark comedy exploring who eats who in a world where everything is observed, everything is a zoo.

As you embark on your own safari through Ron Basford Park, you meet three disparate but connected characters who tell the story of their respective hunts, and how their lives have been forever changed by the pursuit. Come on a hunt to stalk something wild and dangerous … you just might find it.

Describe your show in three words.

Immersive. Exhilarating. Delicious.

Why should someone come see your show?

Someone should come see the show because they want to go on an adventure. Because they feel trapped in the concrete jungle of the city and hear the call of the wild.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

If this show was a superhero, it would be Catwoman. She best exemplifies the desire to stalk, find, and get one’s quarry.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

If I could see just one show besides my own, it would be Geekenders’ Alice in Glitterland. They did a phenomenal job with Slumber Here a couple years ago and I’m very much looking forward to seeing more of their immersive storytelling.
