    “Impressive acting chops…a funny, engaging raconteur.” NNNN
    Now Magazine

    “Torquil Campbell…weaves a tale that keeps you hanging on his every word.” 
    Montreal Gazette

    “Draws you into a web of stories and constantly keeps you guessing about what you can and can’t believe.” 
    The Toronto Star

    We are thrilled to welcome the return of Torquil Campbell (Stars) back to Crow's Theatre with TRUE CRIME, his stage debut which originally premiered at Streetcar Crowsnest in 2017 when the building first opened.

    Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison. Iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size. What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator? In the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art?

    Torquil’s dogged investigation and impersonation challenges us to find the truth in TRUE CRIME and confront our cultural addiction to a good story.

    Entirely scripted or absolutely extemporaneous, TRUE CRIME is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.  Don't miss this one week special presentation!
