The Preacher, the Princess and A Crow
A play by Nicole Moeller
May 18 – 27, 2017
Backstage Theatre (10330 – 84th ave)

“That crow has been following me my whole life…you can never escape the devil.”

Invisible in the innards of the inner-city, engulfed in the flames of the flickering street lamps, Jasper is tasked with saving the princess… if only he can escape the clutches of the crow. A poetic firestorm that intricately weaves together fantasy and reality, The Preacher, The Princess and a Crow dares to examine our obsessions, question our compulsions and ask just how far we’re willing to go to be free. A ferocious new work from one of Edmonton’s hardest hitting playwrights, featuring a spellbinding performance by award-winner Steve Pirot, this is one fairytale not for the faint of heart.


“Never miss a Nicole Moeller play if you can possibly help it.” – Liz Nicholls,

Just south of the Arctic circle sits a factory filled with scientists and engineers and data entry clerks and managers who are faced with the daily task of trying to create a machine that will destroy the world. All was going well until this morning, when Casey had an unfortunate breakthrough.

9 Parts of Desire is a portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war. The Maggie Tree is bringing 9 Edmonton Actors together to create the many faces that make up our 9 Parts of Desire.

Tickets available:

Thank you to the Edmonton Community Foundation, The Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and the Varscona Theatre for their support on this project.
