Street of Blood

Text, Direction, Set Design and Costume Design Ronnie Burkett

September 6, 2000—October 15, 2000

Read Synopsis

When Mrs. Edna Rural pricks her finger and bleeds on her sewing, the face of Christ is revealed to her in a quilt square, and the Shroud of Turnip Corners changers her sleepy prairie town forever.  The media and the faithful converge, joined by a has-been Hollywood starlet, who coincidentally is a vampire, and a karaoke performer bent on a campaign of terror to arouse gay anger and exact revenge.  Just as the blood bath begins, the man in the quilt appears in the flesh, leading to the discovery that the bonds of blood are thicker and stranger than anyone might have individually believed.  Last autumn, the Canadian press lauded Street of Blood with The Calgary Herald asserting, “Even for the jaded playgoer, Burkett’s work is a triumph of theatrical illusion.  It’s bloody brilliant.”
