drama takes on the subject of persecution and racial profiling/ interrogation
in France in the early days of WWII. TITR will examine the results
of fascistic forces using persecution and racism against "undesirables."
The maxim holds that eternal vigilance is the price paid for freedom.
This work is close to the heart in
many ways for our theatre company, as well as for a number of actors
within Vancouver. We believe theatre artists would be honoured to
appear in a piece that speaks to an area of authoritative terrorism
on an emotional and mental scale. There is a powerful message inherent
in Miller's play which will only grow louder as extreme political
events increase and then materialize involving intolerance, exclusion
and interrogation of races of people from countries within many borders.
our production, we will invite speakers, use photo projections, and
build awareness of what an authoritarian upheaval can do to a society.
The play is a learning moment of what can occur if we remain disengaged
from the indignities experienced by others.

Incident at Vichy is presented
by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
>>> Ongoing Theatre
In the Raw Work
we are always in the process of producing series of original One-Act
plays as well as considering mounting a production of a classical
theatre play or a revived musical.
Mythical Voices for Our Time Project
has turned into an ongoing five to possibly six year project: There
are many good scripts still "sitting on the back burner"
that we would like to produce in the future. Additionally we are always
looking to produce winning One-Acts from our Biennial Play Writing
Contest. These could be produced as part
of another One-Act Festival or Mini-Tour when time, venue, and finances
continuing original radio play broadcast over Vancouver Co-Op Radio
CFRO 102.7FM The Arts Rational program (Thursday nights @ 21:00-22:00)
moves forward smashingly. When the opportunity arises we manage to
produce a script with an array of bells and whistles, broadcasting
it live on air. The pieces are usually 30-40 minutes in length and
we look forward to producing more.
usually alternate new original works with classics that are not often
performed. We are currently looking at works by William Saroyan, George
S. Kaufman, or a Shakespeare drama for the 2017/2018 season and beyond.
