Christina ~ Philippe

Closing this weekend!


by Per Brask

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?"

Westbury Theatre in the ATB Financial Arts Barns
(10330-84 Avenue, Edmonton)

The Critics Rave for CHRISTINA/ PHILIPPE!

Both are fine performers and the play opens a discussion that could go on far longer than its Fringe length of a little less than an hour. Four SUNS out of five.” – Colin McLean, for the Edmonton Sun

“Christina / Philippe stands as one of the most curious theatrical exercises you could see, and a deft overview of a vital conversation” – Paul Blinov, for the Vue Weekly

“It’s safe to say that Northern Light Theatre’s production of Christina~Philippe really opened my mind in a huge way to the ways gender is ingrained and internalized. There’s a lot of theatre on in Edmonton right now, but it’s a show that everyone should take the time to see.” – Jenna Marynowski, for the After the House Lights Blog

“It’s an intriguing experiment in how to mine a flat play to make something more contemporary, more theatrical and more dimensional.”- Liz Nicholls, for the Edmonton Journal

“It was, as I said, fascinating. If one of the goals of theatre is to provoke discussion, this one certainly does.”- Kristen Finlay, for the Finster Finds Blog
