    Torquil Campbell on Stars, Stage and True Crime

    Wednesday, 05 April 2017 12:16

    Written by Mark Wigmore

    Senior Arts Editor Mark Wigmore speaks with musician and actor Torquil Campbell about his new one man show at Streetcar Crowsnest, “True Crime”.


    WHO: Stars frontman and actor Torquil Campbell

    WHAT: The one man play, “True Crime”

    Synopsis: Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison. And iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size. What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator? And in the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art? Torquil’s dogged investigation and impersonation challenges us to find the truth in True Crime and confront our cultural addiction to a good story. Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, True Crime is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.

    WHERE: Streetcar Crowsnest Theatre 

    WHEN: Through April 15th.
