May 1-9, 2015 (Preview April 30)

7:30 pm nightly, no show Mondays
Westbury Theatre in the ATB Financial Arts Barns
(10330-84 Avenue, Edmonton)

Queen Christina of Sweden, who dressed and lived as a man, and Philippe, the Duc D’Orleans and brother to King Louis XIV, who dressed as a woman, are locked in a battle of wits and wills.  Christina/ Philippe by Per Brask is a sensory event made up of a mixture of music, live singing, and verbatim interviews culminating to answer the ultimate question- “Do you dare to be who you really are?”


With three plays that include challenging conversations, Northern Light Theatre is delighted to unveil our salon-style events which provoke further dialogue and discussion.
