Before The Curtain Goes Up: When We Were Singing

In this edition of Before The Curtain Goes Up, David C Jones speaks with actor Nevada Banks to learn more about the United Players of Vancouver production of When We Were Singing, on stage at the Jericho Arts Centre from May 31 through June 23.

United Players of Vancouver, in association with Touchstone Theatre, presents Dorothy Dittrich’s musical dramedy When We Were Singing at the Jericho Arts Centre from May 31 through June 23.

When We Were Singing investigates the friendship between four urban-dwelling lost souls, each at a crossroads in their lives. Set around a series of conversations between these friends, we eavesdrop on the ups and downs of their lives over the course of a weekend. Contemporary themes of work, love, hopes, dreams, fears and failures weave through this story, pulled from everyday lives.

On this particular weekend, the friends are joking and drinking heavily, as always. However, the culmination of a series of events has them each facing the realization that the party might be coming to an end. The question is, will they leave or have one more round and risk staying too long?

First produced by Vancouver’s Touchstone Theatre in 1995, director Roy Surette returns to helm this award-winning show in 2024.

In this edition of Before The Curtain Goes Up, David C Jones speaks with actor Nevada Banks to learn more.
