Chrysothemis, the lost daughter of the House of Atreus, is starving for love, affection and peace. She seeks nourishment for her damaged and divided family through cooking - but will the very essence of healing through food be enough to transform and nurture the most dysfunctional family in history?

    October 30, 2020

    Lorne Cardinal was the first-ever Indigenous student to be admitted into the UAlberta's BFA acting program in 1990. “It's paid itself off numerous times - the technique and craft they teach at the U of A are second to none. I never looked back.” In recognition of this stellar career since graduating, Cardinal received the prestigious August Schellenberg Award of Excellence earlier this month from the Toronto-based ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival - the world’s largest Indigenous film and media arts festival! Congratulations, Lorne!

  • 3D image projection technology is making its way to the Department of Drama
