At the edge of an unknown empire, Jack, Ash, and Sarah have grown up in a war that’s been waging for 20 years. Jack’s only weeks away from civilian life, his freedom from the army having been bought for him by a mysterious philosopher who taught him to read and write. All he has to do is wait, smash Sarah’s heart, and keep in line. But when rations wear thin and the king seizes the opium trails, Jack and Ash must fight their way through the violence of withdrawal, militarization, and each other.

“There are ambitious independent theatre-makers and then there’s Susanna Fournier. Keep your passport to the Empire Trilogy handy; this appears to be a journey worth completing.”

- Carly Maga, The Toronto Star
