Catalyst Theatre returns to Edmonton in their new home at the Citadel Theatre’s Maclab Theatre with the World Premiere of Fortune Falls. Brought to you by the world-renowned, award-winning creators of Frankenstein; Nevermore; Hunchback; The Soul Collector, and the recent Vigilante, Fortune Falls will delight and amaze audiences with its original music, stunning sets and costumes, and poignant, relevant messages: everything theatre-goers around the world have come to expect from Catalyst Theatre.
Fortune Falls is the allegorical tale of the rise, fall and reinvention of a prosperous town, once home to the world’s largest candy factory.

Until suddenly, a new owner comes to town and everyone is forced to accept their world will never be the same.
