The Secret Doctrine, July 2-5, Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts – the always fascinating Particia Gruben’s multi-layered play about passion, power, loyalty, science, the supernatural and colonialism. Set in 1885 at the height of the Raj.

Patricia and her team have designed a quite magical accompanying exhibit, The Veil of Nature – free, and you get to walk into a Museum of Liminal Science. It’s on the fourth floor, Room 4350.
