Out of Time 3: A Dark and Steamy Knight

… yet another Steampunk Murder Mystery!

Friday to Sunday, September 23rd-25th, 2016

Worlds away from the place we know as Barkerville, there are the steamy Gothic Goldfields…

The year is 1866 and steam power rules, from the upper echelons of society to the guttertowns of the Gothic Goldfields. Here in the boothills of the Cariboo Mountains lies Wane Manor, a luscious village estate owned by millionaire industrialist and Gothic socialite, Bruce Wane. The Goldfields are also home to an assortment of odd characters, their servants and, from time to time, friends and passers-by. Some of these odd characters have even been described as “super human.”

But even the superest of humans can’t conquer Death…

Over the course of a special, three-day weekend, the first ever Gothic super human peace summit will take place; a step toward bringing crime and vigilantism under control. Yet, when one of these so-called “supermen” is found murdered, the Victorian Empire’s best hope for peace is shattered and it’s up to the remaining Gothic heroes, as well as their villainous enemies, to discover the murderer in their midst.

This is where your adventure begins.

The Fred Wells Show

the_fred_wells_show_002“A fascinating script by Danette Boucher … and a charming, DeNiro-esque performance by James Douglas, this is a true story of honour and determination that can’t help but inspire.” **** MONDAY MAGAZINE

The Fred Wells Show is a fascinating but little known true story from BC’s more recent past…

As the gloom of the Great Depression fell like a fog over North America in the 1930s, one tiny pocket of prosperity shone like a beacon of hope. High up in the foothills of British Columbia’s Cariboo Mountains an introverted yet charismatic prospector named Fred Marshall Wells had a hunch there might still be gold where the province’s great Gold Rush once boomed in the 1860s. And he was right. While the rest of the world struggled simply to survive, the Cariboo Gold Quartz Mine erupted into activity. Soon, thousands of people flocked to the area, and the next Cariboo Gold Rush began. Fred Wells saved countless BC families from the ravages of poverty in the “dirty thirties” and today the town of Wells, BC – 73 kilometres east of Quesnel – survives as his legacy. 

The Fred Wells Show is a 60-minute humorous and dramatic monologue that presents the innermost thoughts of an industrious “man of few words.”
