Black Hole at The Fringe
Posted Thursday, July 16, 2009 8:43 AM

The University of Manitoba's Black Hole Theatre Company is presenting two original student-written plays at the 2009 Winnipeg Fringe Festival.

Gorilla, written by Ken Rudderham, and Antipode, written by Megan Andres, are being presented as a double-bill of entertainment from the University of Manitoba’s Black Hole Theatre Company.

“When I became a student at the University of Manitoba, I had physical therapy as my major and theatre as an elective,” said Andres. “Since then, I developed a strong interest in theatre and it really took over.”

Andres says she received a strong amount of support through her mentors at the U of M, supervising director Chris Johnson and playwright-in-residence Mike Bell.

“The support from Chris and Mike has been amazing. The University of Manitoba has such an incredible theatre program. I really credit their skills for bringing me to where I am today.”

Gorilla and Antipode run 90 minutes long. The show is being presented at Fringe Venue #1, MTC Backstage at the Mainstage (174 Market Avenue).

Show Schedule:
Friday, July 17 @ 3:45pm
Sunday, July 19 @ 6:00pm
Monday, July 20 @ 8:15pm
Tuesday, July 21 @ 12:45pm
