The Leduc Drama Society’s winter show Spirit Control is opening soon. The cast and crew have been working very hard since November to bring a play to Leduc that is very different than what is normally done by the society. This is one you will not want to miss!
A haunting drama, this play is written by Beau Willimon, the writer who developed the Emmy-nominated House of Cards for Netflix.
Adam Wyatt has the perfect family and a perfect record as an air traffic controller. When the pilot of a small plane suffers a heart attack, Adam must talk a terrified passenger through an emergency landing. What happens next will link him inextricably to a woman he’s never met and set the life he once know irrevocably adrift. Spirit Control is a chilling and mesmerizing look at how we navigate a crisis, and the demons that haunt us long after.
The cast, comprised of Larry Rutherford, Lyndon Anderson, Cliff Smith, Becki Comly, David Newton, and Gus Kochan are thrilled to have had the chance to do some extensive character development to bring this to the stage. The play is directed by Cyndi Wagner who is supported by a very talented backstage crew.
The play runs February 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 at 7:30 PM and February 8 at 2:00 PM at the Maclab Centre for the Performing Arts. For information about tickets please visit www.leducdramasociety.ca.
Due to strong language and mature content, this play is not recommended for those under 18 years of age.
