Whiskey Fugue & Requiem
by David MacPherson & the Ensemble

Nov 28 – Dec 16

It’s 1863 in the gold fields of central British Columbia. What do you do when your wife – who has accompanied you on this “dreamer’s quest” – dies, and the nearest centre of civilization is 400 miles away? And from there, you must get her cherished remains back east for burial before the body begins to deteriorate? Well, if you’re one of the lucky few who struck it rich, you set off by dog sled towards Victoria, and from there you transfer the frozen remains to a metal coffin filled with preservative – whiskey of course – where it begins it’s journey homeward; via Panama. But wait! Did the inexplicably heavy coffin really contain the beloved Margaret? And if not….? What did it contain? And where was Margaret? The eccentric nature of John “Cariboo” Cameron invited speculation and his attempt to clarify the situation could only lead to one inevitable course of action. This collectively created physical theatre piece – chronicling the outrageous (but true) adventures of Cameron – was originally a highlight on the Fringe Festival tour circuit in the early 1990’s. Under the guidance and participation of David MacPherson – one of the original troupe members (and current Artistic Director of Victoria’s internationally acclaimed Story Theatre) – a new group of collaborators will re-create this intriguing and bizarre piece of BC history.

Directed by David MacPherson
Starring Melissa Blank and Alex Judd
