Death. Honour. Beer. Everything is on the line as Falstaff struggles to achieve greatness in the face of an impending war, a failing friendship and a crippling addiction. The Falstaff Project is Shakespeare's Henry IV re-mastered as a roving theatre performance throughout The Artery. True to Artery style, following every performance a new local musical act hits the stage each night of the week.
The Falstaff Project is the newest work created by Thou Art Here Theatre, Edmonton's only site-sympathetic Shakespeare company. Since 2011, Thou Art Here has been adapting plays in collaboration with found space environments like The Artery. We strive for the space and the play to expand upon and highlight one another creating a brand new experience for the audience and performer. Our work has been hailed as "intelligible user-friendly Shakespeare", a "rollicking good time", and "how Shakespeare should be performed"!

When singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Mikey Muscat first arrived in Edmonton, AB in Sept 2010 from Toronto, he had no friends, no money and no band. Now he has almost all of those. Combining aspects of rock, soul, dirty blues and danceable prog with a quirky yet thought provoking lyrical blend, Revenge of the Trees is a beautiful swamp water of heart and soul. With the preparation of their first EP for release, they are continuing their slow and steady growth through the top soils of Canada’s music scene and beyond. The percussively-possessed and intelligent drumming style of Nich Davies, the solid-gold and melodically rich basslines of Kurtis Cockerill, the multi-dimensional sonic bliss of Matt King’s lead guitar mixed with the genre-spanning, heart-pounding songwriting style of Mikey Muscat make Revenge of the Trees a band to watch out for.
