Overminded is a physical piece based on psychological growth and the internal activity of a mind under pressure. Overminded centres around three creatures who explore the space, evolve, and reflect certain aspects of mental disorder. This show is about (il)logical fears, panic, chaos, moods, and disorder. It’s kooky, spooky, and beautiful. View the Facebook event page.

Friday, December 8, 7 p.m. (Reception to follow)

Saturday, December 9, 8 p.m.

Sunday, December 10, 2 p.m.



Written by Steven Yockey | Directed by Emma Keil-Vine

Wolves tells the not-so-classic story of a young man who has closed himself off from the world, scared of the “wolves” that roam the streets, fill the bars and personify his fears. He hides in delusions of fairy tales and happily-ever-afters until one night he can no longer separate the story from reality. Funny at times, terrifying at others, Wolves is a modern fairy tale that starts in a grim(m) place and only gets worse. View the Facebook event page.

Friday, December 8, 9 p.m. (Reception to follow)

Saturday, December 9, 9 p.m.

Sunday, December 10, 4 p.m.
