June 2005, Presented by the GCTC and the Magnetic North Theatre Festival.


epochThis is another example of local talent that took my breath away. Absolutely!

...they are really good technicians; they have perfect control of their bodies and that was the difference here there’s none of this sloppy realism. They were really good... Monty Python humour, silent films, lots of things come together here... subversive witty and not politically correct at all.
I also want to compliment the Mask maker...they are beautiful masks.
-Alvina Ruprecht, CBC morning

epoch2...an irreverent journey of song, dance and sketch that's just plain entertaining and fun, if at times a bit morbid... by a bunch of fun-loving guys who just want to make the audience laugh and enjoy a few lighter moments... The witty writing and physical comedy are spot-on.
-Jennifer Parks, The Edmonton Sun

...a chipper series of demises stage-managed by Death in order to reiterate the theatrical truism that it is just silly to mess with a stage manager... there are running gags involving entrances to and exits epoch3from same, plus high-speed but hapless masked gravediggers, a particularly funny pair of ninja grave-robbers, a choleric commedia widower. This is the only show at the Fringe with a fatal donkey accident -- which defines pain in the ass, as they point out -- or any levity on the subject of necrophilia...
-Liz Nicholls, The Edmonton Journal
