By Brendan Gall
Directed by Stefan Dzeparoski
With Clea Alsip, Maren Bush, Ben Cole, and Tony Naumovski
Truth and fiction begin to blend when four friends make a movie about love, infidelity and the complexities of human interaction.
Set in a wondrously strange, erotic landscape, Wide Awake Hearts is the witty new play by Brendan Gall, writer of hit NBC show Blindspot.
Award-winning multimedia artist, Stefan Dzeparoski, skillfully blurs the boundaries between film and live performance.
BirdLand Theatre is a non-profit performing arts company committed to ensemble collaboration through its work with guest artists, sponsors and the community. We promote the art of live theatre through dynamic productions, intensive actor training and outreach programs. We hope to move forward the vitality of theatre by collaborating with artists from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Our productions explore humanity and the human condition in the urban setting and we are guided by the highest standards in every aspect of our creative work. Artistic Producer Zorana Kydd founded the company in 2002 following the completion of Doctoral Studies in Theatre. The Company has won six Dora Awards (Canadian answer to Tonys): one for the Outstanding Production of a Musical for Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and five Dora Awards for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis.
