The OFF THE MAP Theatre Festival will be held January 24-27 and February 1-3. All full-time and adjunct faculty in TMA can receive two comps to all of the Off The Map performances and TMA Students will receive $2 tickets when they use their major card!

BYU’s fifth-annual international theatre festival welcomes a fresh, retelling of one of Shakespeare’s tragedies Macbeth, along with a lively production from one of Scotland’s leading puppetry companies and a production that asks us to examine our willingness to connect to on another.  Information about the shows and festival events can be found below.

This serene and beautiful creation…is a gentle philosophical piece of children’s theatre with a message for all ages.  – The Edinburgh Guide

Puppetry and imagination merge seamlessly in this tale about a workaholic, with no time for fun in his life.  All that changes when his suitcase takes him on a whirlwind adventure.  At its core, this beautiful play contains a valuable lesson for children and adults alike, about the value of fun, and adventure.

NO LATE SEATING

“A lovely, haunting meditation on human connection, and disconnection. . . . A poetic evocation of our mostly unspoken—and un-called upon—dependence on one another.” —New York Times

The latest work by this Brooklyn-based ensemble tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?

FESTIVAL FORUM: An OFF THE MAP Theatre Forum will be held Thursday, January 25 from 11:00-11:50 a.m. in the Nelke Theatre. Meet the company members of the Out of Chaos and Ailie Cohen Puppet Makers to learn about their work. Students of all disciplines and public welcome. Free admission.
