The Cultch is thrilled to present the Vancouver premiere of Ronnie Burkett’s Forget Me Not, February 4- March 1, 2020. Forget Me Not will run for four weeks in a secret location, revealed to audience members before the show.
Welcome to “The New Now”—a time when written language has been suppressed and forgotten and hand-drawn love letters have become a powerful act of defiance. Unlike anything previously experienced, this mysterious and thrilling new production offers each audience member the rare opportunity to hold a one-of-a-kind Ronnie Burkett hand puppet. Becoming a puppet chorus, the audience both witnesses and propels the story as it unfolds. An inspiring theatrical love letter for increasingly uncivilized times.
Commissioned by LUMINATO, Forget Me Not is the fourteenth production from Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes. His boundary pushing work in Canada and internationally has garnered Burkett great renowned, as well as many prestigious awards, including the Siminovitch Prize in Theatre and The Herbert Whittaker Drama Bench Award. In 2019, Ronnie Burkett was appointed as an Officer of The Order of Canada. Forget Me Not affords Burkett’s enduring fans the unique experience of handling one of his meticulously created puppets, and becoming a part of the latest production from the award-winning innovator.
