Ahunwar: The Devil's Long Nap
Ahunwar: The Devil's Long Nap is an exciting new adaptation of Zoroastrian mythology! Three thousand years after a cosmic war, a demoness named Jeh awakens the devil Ahriman from a deep, unnatural slumber. As Ahriman recovers his lost memories, the pair start questioning their identities, their freedom, and everything they think they know to be true. Ahunwar is a new work by local Edmonton playwright Jonah Dunch.
Ahunwar was produced in the 2018 Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival.
Press & Interviews
"The production looks great. It features a clever set and spot-on costumes by Ariadne Belle, and lighting and sound by Brayden Saunders that make you believe you’re a fly on a teenaged boy’s room instead of a theatre. The actors, Braden Butler and Christina Nguyen ... have a vibe that reminded me of Lucifer and Mazikeen in the Vertigo Comics Lucifer series. ... A very slick production." - Arts City
