Elephant Wake

By Joey Tremblay
Directed by Bretta Gerecke

Feb 27, 2008 – Mar 15, 2008

On the surface, this is a story of two Saskatchewan towns – Ste. Vierge, a defunct Francophone town and the prosperous nearby English town of Welby.

Jean-Claude, the last member of a Catholic family who remains in Ste. Vierge tells the tale of how at one time, before the Ice Age, elephants were the size of gophers. Their insignificance is what allowed them to survive. Now he contends, his own marginalized existence will allow his town, his culture, and his family to thrive.

This remarkable one-man play premiered at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in 1995 before earning the Edinburgh Fringe First Award for Outstanding New Work in Scotland. Globe Theatre has commissioned Joey Trembley to revisit and expand his heroic script to a full-length production for this special presentation.
