Fortune of Wolves

The dark imagery of Stephen King meets the catastrophic world of The Walking Dead.

A young man sets out to document his cross-Canada adventure only to find myself in the midst of a apocalyptic event. The dark imagery of Stephen King meets the catastrophic world of The Walking Dead in this world premiere production by New Brunswick playwright Ryan Griffith.

In this epic play, dice are rolled before each performance to determine which characters will tell the story. No two performances will be the same. Which story will you see?

Ryan has shared with us that this play is his examination of how we can find hope in the darkest of situations. I find that this play examines how we as individuals and as a larger community either reach out to help others in these times, or find ways to pull into ourselves. Answering our season question, Fortune of Wolves gives us a massive cross section of humanity and offers the idea that in times of crisis we show who we truly are. - Thomas Morgan Jones | Artistic Director
