Torquil Campbell Returns to the High Performance Rodeo in True Crime

Vertigo Theatre and One Yellow Rabbit are thrilled to announce:

The Castleton Massive Production in Association with Crow’s Theatre
True Crime
Created by Torquil Campbell and Chris Abraham in collaboration with Julian Brown
January 23–27, 2018

As part of the 32nd annual High Performance Rodeo, Calgary's International Festival of the Arts

Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison.  And iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size.  What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator?  And in the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art?  Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, True Crime is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.

Rodeo fans will recall that this show appeared as a work-in-development at the 2016 High Performance Rodeo titled, "The Rockefeller Project"

Tickets available Summer 2017
