Vancouver’s Electric Company Theatre takes up residence at the Vancouver Playhouse with the world premiere of The Full Light of Day.

Using multiple live-streaming cameras, projections and film, The Full Light of Day is a modern allegory set in Canada’s urban financial centres, in which a mother must contend with her husband’s corrupt legacy before she dies.

“Other than the weather, real estate may well be our country’s most frequently discussed topic,” says director Kim Collier. “In this work, we dive deeper, and consider the consequences of a society grown obsessed with property and possession.”

Vancouver Presents contributing editor Mark Robins went inside the Vancouver Playhouse to chat with writer Daniel Brooks, and get a sneak peek at this this theatre-film hybrid.

The Full Light of Day opens at the Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St, Vancouver) on January 7 and continues through January 12.  Visit electriccompanytheatre.com for tickets and information.
