Franz Ferdinand Must Die
From the Creator of The Life Henri & The Assassination of Robert Ford: Dirty Little Coward!
Adam Bailey's twisted, history-based storytelling tackles the improbable events that started a war while asking the question; what leads young men to commit acts of political violence? Using the assassination of Franz Ferdinand as a starting point Bailey dives into the world of his killer, Gavrilo Princip, and creates a theatrical feat that is thought provoking, humorous, and surprisingly empathetic. A contemporary take on an event that has clear implications for a modern audience, "this is not exactly the type of history lesson you may have got in school" (4 STARS, CBC).
Directed by Tyler J Seguin, who recently completed two seasons assistant directing at the Stratford Festival, with sound design by Alex Eddington whose concert music has been performed internationally by ensembles including the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, this show was declared a "Tour-de-Force" by the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and should not be missed.
