Best Theatre Production

Gold Winner Tribe of One, The Doppler Effect

Silver Winner Mary Poppins, Neptune Theatre

Bronze Winner Cinderelly, Shakespeare by the Sea

Earning the top spot from a year’s worth of Halifax theatre is no small endeavour—but The Doppler Effect’s Fringe Hit wasn’t one either. Michael McPhee’s Tribe of One shone at this fall’s Atlantic Fringe Festival, transporting audiences forward 450 years, to a world ruined by over-population, where the toughest decisions are made by psychopaths and the English language is abbreviated and genderless. Two casts—alpha and omega—alternated nights at the Museum of Natural History’s Science on a Sphere room (coolest venue ever) and brought new light to a brilliant script about morality and humanity.
