The Vancouver Island University Theatre Department and Other Guys Theatre Company present SlugFest - a new musical comedy set in a dystopian Vancouver Island community.
What happens when slug slime is hailed as a medical miracle? The residents of a small poverty-stricken and slug-infested village begin celebrating their good fortune! But Samantha, a young crusader for the environment, is determined to stop the harvest. She knows that slugs hold an important place in the coastal ecology, and she makes a compelling argument that threatens the deal the village has made with a large corporation. Disguised as an eco-celebrity, the President of the Corporation arrives in the village, determined to silence opposition and begin reaping slug harvest profits.
