About this book

Nextfest Anthology II celebrates ten years of the Syncrude Next Generation Arts Festival in Edmonton. The Festival is a showcase for emerging professional artists in theatre, film, music, dance, and visual art. This collection exhibits five captivating plays chosen from the past five years of the festival. Timely, provocative, witty, uncanny, and illuminating, these plays highlight innovative talents that will leave you breathless.

Join a group of marionettes as they explore a strange new world; delve into the humorous and ironic personal tale of a young Métis actor and comedian; submerge yourself in a bizarre honeymoon in Spain; enter the world of reality tv and feel yourself losing control; experience a cyber-obsessed life on Edmonton’s Whyte Avenue.

The diverse plays found in Nextfest Anthology II challenge the reader to go beyond Nextfest, beyond the stage, into the world of imagination unbound.
