ABBEDAM is a student run production company at the University of Alberta that was established in 1995. This will be our 26th production since our founding, as we produce one large scale production every November. This year's production of "Welcome to Thebes" by Moira Buffini is directed by a Bachelor of Arts alumna who directed our production last year by the same playwright and holds a cast of 26 current BA and BEd students. The play runs 2 hours long with a 15 minute intermission.
