WROL (Without Rule of Law)
BY MICHAELA JEFFERY
DIRECTED BY LAUREL GREEN
MARCH 5 – 17, 2019
Sugar and spice and… duct tape?
Four 8th grade friends defect from their troupe, turning instead to the online survivalist movement to teach them the skills they believe they’ll need to survive the post-collapse world they anticipate inheriting.
Can the group put their new skills to use to solve the mystery of what happened to an enigmatic group of social outsiders that disappeared from their neighbourhood overnight?
In the same vein as stories made for adults about childhood like Stranger Things and Big Mouth, this world premiere play by local playwright Michaela Jeffery throws back to the style of classic adventures like The Goonies to explore the threats (real and imagined) facing young girls today.

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
