Keystone Theatre is delighted to return to the Toronto Festival of Clowns with their newest silent film inspired play Gold Fever. After premiering The Last Man on Earth at the festival in 2011, and touring across Canada to rave reviews and sold out houses, Keystone sets its sights on a new work inspired by the Klondike. Set in a barren and brutal landscape where fortunes are made and hearts are broken, Gold Fever explores how the dream of striking it rich brings out the best and the worst in people. Brilliant physical comedy and the rough and tumble spirit of the Klondike combine as we bring unique characters and their stories to life.
Dora Award Winning Keystone Theatre performs in their signature style bringing the aesthetic of silent films to life on stage. The highly talented ensemble dons stylized makeup and costumes all in black, white, and shades of grey. A few strategic title cards appear from time to time, but their stories are primarily communicated through look, gesture, and emotion all supported by an original musical score performed live. Their varied expertise combined with their passion for silent film has allowed them to perfect an entirely unique genre of physical theatre.
