Aleugenta is a second play at this year’s Fringe Festival that is being co-sponsored by the Living Archives on Eugenics in

Zephyr-x, a theatre collective based in Edmonton, is producing its first Fringe Production, Aleugenta. This live action feature focuses on the loss of innocence at the hand of society during one of Alberta’s most deplorably deceitful acts to date.
