OFF THE MAP

OFF THE MAP: BYU INTERNATIONAL THEATRE FESTIVAL
January 13-21, 2017

BYU’s fourth-annual international theatre festival welcomes a hit show direct from a sold-out run at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a single company with two productions–one a returning favorite, the other a Utah premiere–for a unique triple-bill of innovative theatrical storytelling from Australia and England. OFF THE MAP is generously supported by the BYU Mary Lou Fulton Endowment in Theatre and Media Arts.

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious…possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” The Guardian

You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. This sold-out hit of the Edinburgh Fringe is a new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

Every Brilliant Thing is supported by Anne McMeehan and Jim Roberts and was developed with the support of nabokov and the Jersey Arts Trust. #EveryBrilliantThing

“A rare triumph of theatrical ingenuity and human compassion.” West Australian

Puppetry, mask, animation, and live performance merge seamlessly in this epic western about an old man and his noble tent who go wandering together into the wild. Inspired by experiences and research into Alzheimer’s and Sundowner’s Syndrome, the play is a heartfelt, fearless, and inventive voyage about aging, getting lost and trying not to be found.

“…surely one of the most heart-warming and life-affirming shows you’ll see…a pocket masterpiece of invention, staging, and performance.” Edinburgh Festivals

This multi award-winning one-man micro-epic puppet show melds technology and multimedia into a touching story of enduring love and the end of the world. Created by Tim Watts, this solo performance employs a unique blend of mime, puppetry, live and recorded music, and live animation to present an exploration of the next and oldest frontier: the deep blue sea.
