The Listening Room by Michaela Jeffery

"You have to fight, or there's nothing." – Marcus, The Listening Room

On the fringes of a remote desert society, a group of teenage dissidents search for fragments of earlier civilizations still ricocheting between stars. Using antiquated 21st century radio telescopes, The Listeners risk everything to connect to a past that has faded both from memory and record. On the eve of a trial that would decide their fate, The Listeners must choose to conform, or to strike out and seize the future they want to inherit.

The Listening Room is presented by Azimuth Theatre and Downstage as part of the Alberta Emerging Company Showcase, which provides support and mentorship to up-and-coming companies like Cardiac Theatre. The show features a team of emerging professional artists from Calgary and Edmonton.
