""Kids Go Wild for ZooZoo... Wow!” Every minute... was engaging and hysterical... laugh out loud throughout the whole show... completely original and unlike anything I have ever seen before... a perfect first theatre experience for children!"
Firefly eyes, hippos with insomnia, arrogant anteaters, introverted frogs, paradoxical polar bears, acrobatic worms, self-touting accordions and tricky penguins fill the stage with wonder, awe and humor.

A living ghost visits the wife of her ex-lover. The "Fatal Attraction" of Japanese Theatre
With a follow-up to director Jerry Mouawad's United States premiere of "The Black Lizard" (2012) comes one of Yukio Mishima's acclaimed adaptations of Japanese classic drama. Lady Aoi lies in a hospital bed in what the Nurse calls a treatment for her "sexual complexes." Her husband returns from a business trip to find his wife in a semi-coma when he encounters a strange visitor that visits his wife in the middle of every night. What ensues is both startling, surreal and a poetic thriller. Part of Third Rail's Wild Card Series.

After a two-year haitus Carol Triffle retuns with an original work titled Cloud, a semi-linear romp into the unexpected chaos of Bridget’s unstable world. Bridget follows on the hills of Triffle’s heroines – female, young, brilliant but lost. Of Triffles’ past works Beaux Arts Club, Splat, The Dinner, the critics have raved. “Twisted and delightful fever” said the Willamette Week; “Wierdly Brilliant” glowed The Oregonian. Triffle’s work is funny but hard to pigeonhole. It’s a theatre that steps way out of the box. For Imago’s playwright in residence, the stage is a place to display a universe that resembles the reality of our everyday world “but spins that reality to create poetic and comedic treats. A cocktail of events that, when stirred, becomes unexpected combustion.
