Salt-Water Moon

Thu, Feb 15 - Sat, Feb 24

6500 Gilbert Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 1A2, Canada map

The glorious production of David French’s Salt-Water Moon was a sold-out hit in Toronto last season. The beloved Canadian classic about love, loss, and reconciliation is daringly re-imagined by visionary director Ravi Jain. With its boldly spare staging, this production asks “Can you ever truly return home?”
It’s 1926 and every day the villages of Newfoundland are being abandoned by their young for a new life in the big city; but, eighteen-year-old, Jacob Mercer, has come home to Coley’s Point to win back his former sweetheart, Mary Snow, after abruptly leaving over a year ago. By the light of a moon-filled night, the former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future together.

Remote Control

Thu, Feb 15 - Thu, Mar 22

32315 S Fraser Way, Abbotsford, BC V2T 1X1, Canada map

– Remote Control –
Two Act Comedy: A spoof about fake news broadcasting
The story of the corporate takeover is a common theme in today’s headlines. Sometimes it is a little firm taking over a larger competitor or two giants merging into a new super corporation but more commonly it is an existing corporate empire that is expanding into a new territory swallowing up local businesses. What if the locals don’t want to be swallowed up and they find that they have the skills to resist and maybe even stop the takeover?
This becomes the premise for Remote Control, a two act multimedia comedy production, using live actors, music videos, prerecorded segments and some cartoon style costume performances. The story is set in modern day near the turn of the century.
A corrupt New York broadcasting company, Lancaster Broadcasting, is expanding their empire into Canada. They have put in an offer to purchase the Scott Network, in the western provinces, which must be approved by Canadian regulators. Lancaster plans on stripping the Scott Network which also means shutting down all of the local community television stations. Six resolute and technically savvy souls at Peppercorn Community Television on an island in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia find out and vow to hoax, spoof and lambaste their new head office in what ever way they can. The Peppercorn Crew has also developed a C.G.I. (Computer Generated Intellect) ‘Darwin’ who now takes their efforts in a whole new direction. The mystery begins as now the audience must figure out who is spoofing whom.

Pacific Overtures (Musical)

Fri, Feb 16 - Sat, Mar 3

581 Cardero St, Vancouver, BC V6G 3L3, Canada map

“Pacific Overtures” is a one-of-a-kind experiment in the annals of the musical theatre.” – New York Times

Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman mix elements of Kabuki theatre with the convention of the Broadway musical in Pacific Overtures, a highly original, inventive, powerful, educational and surprisingly humourous theatrical experience. Commodore Matthew Perry’s 1853 mission to open trade relations with isolationist Japan through gunboat diplomacy forges and unlikely friendship between the samurai Kayama and the Americanized fisherman Manjiro. Kayama and Manjiro – and all of Japanese society – must face the wave of Westernization that follows.

The Ultimate Traveller: Impressions of Armenia

Wed, Feb 21

1414 Argyle Ave, West Vancouver, BC V7T 1C2, Canada map

We start at the foot of Mount Ararat in Armenia and see Yerevan with its impressive memorial to the Armenian Genocide. We will also see the ancient Monasteries of Haghpat & Sanahin, Lake Sevan, the Cathedral and Churches of Echmiatsin, the ancient archaeological site of Zvartnots and the Monastery of Geghard and the Upper Azat Valley. We also will explore Nagorno-Karabakh, which can only be accessed through Armenia. Locally known as Artsakh, this self-declared republic consists of the traditionally Armenian parts of Azerbaijan that are currently locked in a struggle to break away. The territory has been fought over by Azeri and Armenian backed local forces but now benefits from a long standing period of peace.
