It’s the spring of 1989, and there are whispers of a party. It’s in an apartment on the east side of town. If you know, you know. If you don’t know, well…now you do. But be sure to keep it to yourself. You never know who’s listening.
Theatre Yes is excited to be partner with Edmonton’s Found Festival on a workshop production of this new play by Edmonton’s Bevin Dooley July 4-7 in Edmonton. The presentation is the culmination of Bevin’s time as the Common Ground Arts Society’s Fresh AiR Artist-In-Residence.

Set during the final year of Nicolae Ceausescu’s Communist regime in Romania, IN CAMERA is an immersive drama, inspired by historic events. It explores the power that lies in our families, in our communities, in resistance, and in a humble VHS cassette.
IN CAMERA‘s production at Found Festival 2019 is a first stop on the journey of artistic development for the piece. Immersive events are our jam. We’re looking forward to playing with Bevin and the gang on the development of an exciting new piece of theatre.
