"In many eastern European communities that word still conjures myths as old as the bones in the hills. For us, one might ask -- Who are the werewolves of today?
Inspired by a wake in a Belorussian village, Werewolves has a possessed and frightening intensity that evokes an Old World spell in its capacity to dissolve the boundaries between the physical, mental, and spiritual worlds. Realism gives way to the fantastic. A wake transforms into a wedding. Mantraps are made – and used. And these events draw not only the attendance of neighbours, but also of three frightening strangers.
Werewolves is Pi Theatre’s second annual Prime @ Pi production, created to aid individual emerging theatre artists. Prime @ Pi is open to artists who are not yet members of The Canadian Actors Equity Association or The Associated Designers of Canada, but who are pursuing professional status.
The Production Team is: Sara Kerastas - Assistant Director, Laura Dodwell-Groves - Stage Manager, Chelsea Sherbut - Assistant Stage Manager, Dani Bryant - Assistant Production Manager, Jeff Harrison - Lighting Design, Jergus Michal Oprsal - Set Design, Izzy Rubin - Props Design & Assistant Set Design, Alexander Brendan Ferguson - Sound Design, and Sabrina Evertt - Costume Design.

This year’s Mentors are David Roberts - Set Design, Del Surjik - Lighting Design, Barbara Clayden - Costume Design, Patrick Pennefather - Sound Design, Jayson McLean - Production, and David Kerr - Stage Manager.
