The inaugural Outskirts Theatre Festival gala was full of flare on Wednesday as six performing artists, such as Kevin Armstrong, Devon More and Lisel Forst,  gave the crowd a taste of their weekend shows taking place tonight and Saturday. The headline act, The Heart by Break/Contemporary Circus,  explored the connection between two people on their journey through life.
