Theatre at the Pearl Co poster

Living Tall

2 Performances Only: Friday and Saturday, March 18 & 19 at 7:30pm.
$15 at the door.

Acclaimed theatre artist and teacher, Ker Wells, presents this absurd comedy
veering into existential crisis. Salesman Jeffrey Weaver's presentation is going
smoothly as he guides his audience through the steps of "Living Tall,"
his high-octane and delightfully strange motivational program for increasing sales
and earning respect in the business community. But Weaver can't escape an
incident that haunts him and threatens to knock him seriously off-message.
"Killer-Funny... with a mind-blowing performance by the amazing Ker Wells..."

Living Tall is an original three-way creative collaboration between veteran theatre artists
Ker Wells (performer) and Karin Randoja (Director), and Cleveland writer Michael Geither.

Ker Wells: A recent immigrant to Hamilton, Ker was a founding member
of two of the companies at the forefront of Canadian physical and devised theatre.
He has trained, performed and taught across Canada and in the U.S. and Europe,
and is a returning guest faculty member at the National Theatre School of Canada,
and the Humber College School of Performing Arts. Ker has just returned from a
6-week collaboration with U.S. and Mexican artists in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Darwinii: The Comeuppance of Man
2 Performances Only: Friday and Saturday, March 25 & 26 at 7:30pm.
$15 at the door.

A once in a lifetime chance to see a swashbuckling, one-man "tour de farce"
that deftly skewers everything you think you know about Darwin.
A unique and imaginative trip 'round Darwinism, deep time, evolution, and survival
of the fittest that's also serious fun.
With Brett Keyser, writer, director, and performing artist.
Darwinii was conceived by playwright Glen Berger and writer-performer Brett Keyser.
Darwinii was originally commissioned by the American Philosophical Society Museum.

Brett Keyser is a writer, director, and performing artist. His Philadelphia production
company Nightjar Apothecary presents theatrical investigations into the history and philosophy
of science that are stimulating, entertaining and always accessible.

Glen Berger is an award-winning playwright and co-author with Julie Taymor of the
Broadway musical Spiderman, Turn Off The Dark. He has won two Emmys for children's
television series and is head writer for the PBS series Fetch.
