The Out Vigil
Mere hours before the opening of the perilous king crab fishing season, a young Newfoundlander arrives in Alaska, desperate for a job. A local fisherman grudgingly agrees to help him out, but past & present collide when a young woman shows up. A modern fable steeped in maritime lore, The Out Vigil questions our ability to accept the natural world for all that it is, both beautiful and terrifying.

This production marks Twenty Something Theatre's return to the Spotlight on Emerging Playwrights program that so successfully brought you the development of the critically acclaimed production of Prodigals.

2014 Spotlight playwright Julie McIsaac is a graduate of Carleton University and the Canadian College of Performing Arts, Julie is a multi-talented theatre artist currently based in Vancouver.  She has appeared on stages throughout Western Canada  including productions at the Arts Club, Bard on the Beach, the Belfry Theatre, the Citadel Theatre, Pacific Theatre, Carousel Theatre, the Gateway Theatre, and the Chemainus Theatre Festival  and she is a two-time Jessie award nominee: Ophelia in Hamlet (Honest Fishmongers), Jane in Mother Teresa is Dead (Pacific Theatre).  Always keen to take on challenges and flex her various creative muscles, Julie's projects this past year have been extremely diverse  and numerous!  She played violin and oboe in Caravan Farm's Head Over Heels, directed Lend Me a Tenor for Company C in Victoria, reunited with the Honest Fishmongers for Measure for Measure at Pacific Theatre, performed en français! as Léa in Des fraises en janvier (Théâtre la Seizième), directed Someone Who'll Watch Over Me (Dancing Monkey Presents), and she is now in rehearsals for John Patrick Shanley's inimitable Doubt at TheatreOne.  Julie is also an Associate Artist with Relephant Theatre, where past projects include directing Ordinary Days and The Exquisite Hour.  Other credits: directing the premiere of Countryside Christmas (Chemainus), two seasons as an apprentice director at Bard on the Beach, Associate Director of Sum Theatre's My Rabbi, (heading to the Edinburgh Festival in August 2014), and later this summer, Assistant Stage Director of L'Incoronazione di Poppea in Sulmona, Italy. The Out Vigil is Julie's first full-length play, and she is grateful for the support of Twenty Something Theatre, and PTC's Write Space program.

Directed by Artistic Producer Sabrina Evertt this new work features local rising stars Gili Roskies (Cool Beans, Solo Collective and Broken Sex Doll, Virtual Stage), Matthew Macdonald-Bain (Of Mice and Men, Hardline Productions), and Raes Calvert (Jessie Richardson Award for Where the Wild Things Are, Presentation House Theatre).
