    Departing on a city bus outside The Bus Stop Theatre, this immersive theatre piece attempts to discern between imagination and reality as it retells the story of Simon Douglas' childhood, which was split between a reserve and downtown Vancouver in the '70s. "Tales of an Urban Indian conjures up an array of characters that come in and out of Simon’s life as seen through his eyes—but are all played by one actor," Prismatic says of the work, which sees its East Coast debut at the festival. 1-888-639-1169

    Winnipeg outfit The Mariachi Ghost—equally well-known for its Día de Los Muertos makeup and its nimble musicianship—brings its blend of Mexican folklore, theatrical flare and prog-rock embellishments to the stage for a performance of Rencor Vivo. The piece, which the Prismatic Festival bills as equal parts "musical theatre, storytelling (a ghost story), and cultural hypnosis" rewinds the clock to old world Mexico while walking the streets of a ghost town. 1-888-639-1169

    The Changeling: Chimes of Bedlam

    Nov. 21-25
    The Bus Stop Theatre 2203 Gottingen Street, Halifax North End


    The Villain's Theatre's fall performance sees the troupe tackle what it calls "one of the most darkly funny and shocking plays of the Renaissance" with a new adaptation of the tale of an affair and murder at London's infamous asylum, the Bedlam Hospital. "Thus begins a chain of violence and sexual obsession, culminating in a shocking and complex villainous partnership, delving further and further into the world of both gender politics and mental health," the theatre company promises. 1-888-639-1169
