Adam Bailey’s twisted, history-based storytelling tackles the improbable events that started a war while asking the question; what leads young men to commit acts of political violence? Using the assassination of Franz Ferdinand as a starting point Bailey dives into the world of his killer, Gavrilo Princip, and creates a theatrical feat that is thought provoking, humorous, and surprisingly empathetic. A contemporary take on an event that has clear implications for a modern audience. With sound design by Alex Eddington, and direction by Tyler Seguin, Franz Ferdinand Must Die has been praised as “a historical tour de force” (Saskatoon Star Phoenix) and is surely an event not to be missed.
