A serpent of transformation takes aim at an inmate serving time at William Head Prison. He is pulled out of his time and finds himself conversing with people were there long before him. He must embark on a journey of self-discovery to find his way back to the present. Inspired by the book Quarantined by Peter Johnson and true stories of William Head Peninsula, this new work will inspire, delight and engage audiences. One part whimsy. One part sci-fi.
"Its a testament to the power of theatre to change lives." Globe and Mail
" Brilliant choreography....I laughed and I cried....We 'law-abiding' citizens have a lot to learn from these people on the other side." Audience member
"The set/costumes/imaginative way the play was produced was just delightful!! Audience member
" I can see a lot of value in this program, from the opportunity it gives inmates to cultivate self-insight, to work with others, and to engage with complete strangers in a positive way. And it certainly gave us in the audience insight into the lives of these men, in a way, that perhaps goes deeper than just a regular conversation." Audience member
