"Captain Ferguson's School For Balloon Warfare" will have its international premiere at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
"To New Heights!"
Oracle Theatre Inc will proudly bring Captain Ferguson's School For Balloon Warfare, for it's international premiere, to the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August. After our successful New York premiere last Summer, we'll be hosted by the Assembly for three straight weeks at the Roxy Arthouse/Downstairs, a beautiful converted former chapel in Georges Square in Edinburgh, Scotland. Help us as we soar to new heights!
Inspired by true events surrounding World War I, Captain Ferguson’s School for Balloon Warfare chronicles U.S. Army Captain Thomas Ferguson’s struggle to turn canvas observational balloons into armed attack vehicles against Kaiser Wilhelm. The production, a solo performance combined with original video projections, historical photos and interactive sound design, is an absurd yet moving ode to patriotism and misguided genius. Captain Ferguson... illuminates a period in American history not usually viewed from this perspective — looking up.
