Borealis - an epic quest through the corporate pipeline

By Bennett Fisher

Directed by Monty Cole

Featuring Company Members Johnny Arena, Paige Hoffman, and Ben Hertel with work from Matthew Muñiz and Lee Keenan

AN EPIC QUEST THROUGH THE CORPORATE PIPELINE

August 30 - October 21

Chopin Upstairs Theatre, 1543 W. Division Street

 

When a redacted and ominous letter arrives from her brother on the oil fields, thirteen-year-old Cozbi sets off for Anwar, Alaska to find him. Armed with a book on corporate communication strategy and a sharp ax, Cozbi battles her way through an Arctic wilderness in pursuit of her missing brother.  But she'll have to face more than a multi-tentacled HR rep to learn the truth. Part mythic journey, part workplace satire, Borealis is a dark and funny adventure about family obligation, career aspiration and what we leave behind to make our way to the top.
