From the writer of award-winning Fringe sensation HYSTERIA comes a brand-new dystopia blending humour with horror. ver·i·si·mil·i·tude premieres as part of the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, with performances from 10 – 18 September at the Waterfront Theatre.

 

ver·i·si·mil·i·tude follows Eve (played by award-winning actor Jill Raymond), who has been integrated into EPITOME’s Safe Space program, developed to allow humans to live their lives entirely in the digital realm, protected from the threats of the outside world.  

 

In a world where you can be anywhere, see anyone, experience anything at the click of a button and from the safety of your own home - the possibilities are endless and most importantly you never have to be concerned about war, social unrest, global warming or disease. You are perfectly safe and your world is endless. Totally alone, you’ll never be lonely again. 

 

Written by Jill Raymond and Directed by Isa Sanchez - ver·i·si·mil·i·tude features a multi-national cast of actors in a performance which blends film and live theatre. Audiences can expect a rollercoaster of emotion as Direct Theatre Collective once again look to evoke questions through powerful storytelling and piercing social commentary.
