6 weeks after.


I worked with some youngsters, ok teenagers, at Arts Umbrella to develop a piece about Vancouver right now, and specifically the riot. They are a dedicated talented bunch, directed by Darcey Johnson, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I took the group’s writing and research into the riot, and created a big stew of what went down on June 15, 2011 and what it might mean to all of us. It’s one of things that I really like about theatre: we can respond quickly to current events.

And another thing that’s cool? It has a cop car on stage. That’s right.

Here’s a Globe and Mail article.

Will be on CBC radio’s On the Coast at 5:50pm today to chat more about this.
