Some Great Theatre in Vancouver to Nibble On

This is a good month for theatre and new plays!
First though, let me say, for the general audience, Mary Poppins at the Arts Club is probably going to be lovely and fun considering the very talented cast. Any time you get a chance to hear SJ Hosie’s and Katey Wright’s sweet voices: take it!
The work at the Richmond Gateway is well on its way to becoming important and relevant enough to cross the bridge for. Check out the highly acclaimed Dora award winning play, Crash:
Nov 14-23
Gateway Theatre
6500 Gilbert Rd., Richmond, Richmond
Gateway Theatre presents writer-performer Pamela Sinha’s riveting narrative about a woman facing shattered memories of a past sexual assault.
And finally, another fabulous female playwright is Trina Davies. I’m so glad Katrina has been the one to pick this beauty up. Trina was working on it while I was in Banff. It’s a smart fascinating historical thriller.

The Romeo Initiative

Nov 15-23

The Cultch
1895 Venables, Vancouver

Touchstone Theatre presents Trina Davies’s seductive spy thriller based on a real program in West Germany in which secretaries were targeted and psychologically profiled to determine their perfect man.

If you’re one to check out readings, one of my other favourite writers in town is Michelle Riml. Check out her play, Amaryllis.  


Nov 10-17

Revue Stage
1601 Johnston, Granville Island, Vancouver

The Arts Club Theatre Company presents a free public reading series. Includes Michele Riml’s The Amaryllis (Nov. 15, 8 pm), Melody Anderson’s Me and You (Nov. 16, 8 pm), and Hiro Kanagawa’s Indian Arm (Nov. 17, 4 pm).


finally, Except in the Unlikely Event of War opens next week. I’m in that. It’s a smart political satire with a lot of “very Vancouver” laughs you’ll enjoy.

    I look forward to checking out all of these shows. May I say that it’s also great to see so many women in key creative roles in these productions, especially as writers?

      yes! Fabulous, eh?
