The Burning Pestle

The Burning Pestle Dates / Times 2020-02-21 to 2020-02-29 (19:30 to 22:30) Organization Scorpio Theatre Type Multi Day Community 2140 Pumphouse Theatre SWCalgary, ABT3C 3P5 Scorpio Theatre presents 'The Burning Pestle' by local award-winning playwright, Dan Gibbins from February 21 – 29, 2020. The second show in its 2019-2020 season, this show is the second in his series ('Dying on Stage'). Sometime has passed since we saw the wheels go off the cart in Taranto Theatre with the cast and crew spinning in circles to try to get the play staged, but here we are again. It's opening night for Taranto Theatre's new play, a comedy of star-crossed lovers from house playwright Phil Payton. But when the donor whose grant is keeping the struggling company from bankruptcy decides she has some changes to suggest, Phil and the rest of the company must adapt, as their simple romance is complicated by the addition of a new character, an unpredictable knight… the knight of the Burning Pestle. Who embraces this new plot? Who fights against it? Can the company keep the story moving long enough to reach the curtain call? . Event Details. Location: 2140 Pumphouse Theatre SW, Calgary
