Castle in the Sky comes to the Belfy

What drove a 12-year-old girl in Medicine Hat, Alberta to murder her family 10 years ago?

What drove a 12-year-old girl in Medicine Hat, Alberta to murder her family 10 years ago?

That is the question explored in Castle in the Sky, a new play on at the Belfry Theatre this month.

In April 2006, a 12-year-old girl and her 23-year-old boyfriend fatally stabbed her mother, father and six-year-old brother.

The play, presented by Victoria-based theatre company, Castlereigh Theatre Project, uses verbatim words of people connected to the story, gathered from more than 200 hours of interviews conducted by theatre members following the tragedy.

Among the many community members interviews were friends of the killers, friends of both families, police, teachers, politicans and crime reporters.

The play runs from April 23 to 29 at the Belfry Theatre (1291 Gladstone Ave.)
