Vancouver’s Reality Curve Theatre, in partnership with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, brings theatre to the streets of downtown Vancouver with Ethan Coen’s Waiting. Here are five reasons you should go:
1. It’s not every day you get to see a live performance of a play written by a Coen brother. Half of the famous brother directing duo, Waiting has everything you would expect from a Coen: humour, an existential element, and a touch of darkness.
2. It definitely beats checking your Facebook page while you eat lunch at your desk. Instead, grab a a co-worker, bring your lunch, and get outside.
3. With the performance under 20 minutes you should have no problem squeezing it in to your busy work day.
4. The diverse cast is a great mix of up-and-comers and veteran Vancouver performers including Mae Belen, Michael Berube, Jesse Carroll, David C Jones, and Gilles Arnaud Nduwimana.
5. Did we mention it was free?
Waiting takes place in downtown Vancouver from August 23 to September 8. Visit http://realitycurve.com for exact locations, dates and showtimes.
