Sept. 28- Oct. 5 @ Performance Works in Granville Island (1218 Cartwright St.)
Secret Service is a 90-minute operetta composed by Neil Weisensel (who has composed 6 full length operas) and written by local playwright Kico Gonzalez-Risso.
An abandoned warehouse. A group of mannequins. A masked figure. Mysterious agents. The scene is set for the ultimate spy story, which will mix hilarity with eroticism and horror. A high powered figure, with his bodyguard in tow, enters the warehouse to engage in a secret meeting with his mistress. However, we soon discover that not all is what it appears to be as a whip-yielding dominatrix surfaces who brazenly challenges the figure's position of power. Secret Service challenges our ideologies of knowledge and power in a technological society, while posing questions about privacy, choice and responsibility.
