he University of the Fraser Valley Theatre Department and UFV’s Ensemble Project Class are proud to present The Romeo Initiative, by Trina Davies. For the first time, experience a UFV Theatre production produced and presented entirely by students. Performances are January 14-16th at 7:30 pm and January 17th at 2:00 pm and will take place at the CEP Performance Studio at the University of the Fraser Valley’s Chilliwack Campus.
Romeo Initiative, by Trina Davies, is a story of love, lies, and intrigue,
set against the backdrop of the Cold War politics of 1970s Germany. Taking
place at a time when the population of women greatly outnumbered that of the
men, the story follows Karin, a secretary in West Germany, and her
relationship with the mysterious Markus. Told from alternating perspectives,
the play asks: can true love emerge from an artificial environment?
