Mischief Managed, founded by Molly Staley, Olivia Latta, and Jordan Bloement, is an Edmonton-based theatre company specializing in found space and guerrilla theatre.

Why Found Space?

You can trace this whole debacle back to late night drinks and a simple enough question — why a play set in a hotel couldn't take place in an actual hotel room? Sure the audience could only be six people, but that suited us just fine. A theatre can be a magical place, but it's not necessarily the thing that makes theatre magical.

Sometimes it means creating a cult just so our audience can watch it end. Sometimes it means joining a pack of freighthoppers in the back of an actual shipping container.

Tell a serious story but don't take yourself too seriously. And above all else, surprise them.
