The Shadbolt Centre presents “Tomorrow’s Child” from Ghost River Theatre
Calgary’s acclaimed Ghost River Theatre, with special permission from the Ray Bradbury estate, has created a new audio-only adaptation of Bradbury’s sci-fi short story Tomorrow’s Child as a one-of-kind, audio-only theatre experience presented to a blindfolded audience.
“Come on!” (Eric) Rose says. “It’s wicked! Who doesn’t want to go into a room and have an extraordinary, immersive sound experience?” – Calgary Herald
This ain’t no radio play – the quirks of 50s sci-fi are reimagined for a highly immersive sonic environment, created with the latest in sound technology. This is an unforgettable sonic journey that has to be heard to be believed.
Bradbury's classic short story presents two new parents in an imagined future confronting the realities of their newborn baby – who has been born into another dimension. Will they accept the divide between parent and child? Or find another solution?
“…Your ears receive the audio equivalent of a five-star dinner.” - Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald
“…an intriguing immersive experience combined with compelling storytelling.” - Jessica Goldman - CBC Radio Reviewer
Based on the short story Tomorrow Child by Ray Bradbury, originally published as The Shape of Things © 1947; renewed 1975
