Sechs (zekhs) follows six characters whose different beliefs about intimacy and relationships clash in bars and bedrooms as they try to navigate modern dating.
Tell us about the show.
All the scenes are set in bars and bedrooms. This also happens to be the backdrop of many of the most intimate moments of people’s lives.
Limitations to casting – gender, race, age – are not specified by the script and no gender specific/neutral pronouns – he, she, they – are used to refer to any of the characters. Their embodiment depends on the actors playing them.
Why should someone come see your show?
If they want to see the innermost parts of other peoples’ relationships laid bare and recognize themselves then they should come see Sechs.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Multiple Man, because it’s a show about six characters who in their own way are parts of the same person.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
Cry-Baby: The Musical from Awkward Stage Productions.
