Graduates of the Department of Dramatic Arts are on the boards again and this time they are playing IN THE SOIL.

Nathan Tanner Mac Donald - A resident of the St Catharines downtown area and recent graduate of the Department of Dramatic Arts has brought together a team of DART students to present this metaphysical rollercoaster.  The Clockmaker may seem like little more than a love story set inside a murder-mystery-to-be, but it just might end up exposing the very truth of existence itself.

Nathan recently performed in the 2011 STRUTT wearable art show and this past summer he wrote and directed Circus, which played at Factory Theatre in the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival. He cannot wait to share the brilliant play The Clockmaker in this year's festival.

In the Soil Arts Festival brings Niagara artists from a range of disciplines together to provide unique audience experiences. The festival nurtures the creation of new work, showcases talent, encourages innovation, offers learning opportunities for youth and provides intimate and uncommon platforms for audiences to experience work by contemporary performing and literary artists, musicians and media artists. In the Soil is Niagara's homegrown arts festival and is working to make a Niagara that is self-determining and culturally distinct.

Break-a-leg, Nathan, Caitlin, Geoffrey, Kate and Finn!
