Three Winters

Wed, Nov 7 - Sat, Nov 17

1895 Venables St, Vancouver, BC V5L 2H6, Canada map

World Premiere. Throughout art and history, the biggest roles and adventures have been given to men. Not in this play—a fictional recontextualization of real-life events. In Three Winters, a troupe of seven millennial actresses play WWII soldiers captured in the Stalag Luft III POW camp. Those men not only infamously hatched escape plans—immortalized by 1963 film, The Great Escape, they performed plays sent by the Red Cross, which required the men to play both male and female parts. When these historical events are acted by modern young women, not out of circumstantial necessity, but by choice, Three Winters asks audiences to question their assumptions about who we allow to play what parts and why.
