Once you surrender to director Nigel Shawn Williams’s vision the Bard on the Beach production of The Merchant of Venice (until Sep 16) has huge payoffs.

Still the Kettle Sings.

Based on interviews with seven extraordinary women in their lives, the company of Vancouver’s Plan Z Theatre premieres the brand new work, Still the Kettle Sings (Jul 12-15). Using narration, dance, song, poetry, and movement it is all about listening, love and a whole lot of tea.

3This is Our Youth

Midtwenties Theatre Society launches with its inaugural production of This is Our Youth (Jul 14-23). From the writer of Manchester by the Sea, this dark comedy is the story of three privileged twenty-somethings on the path to adulthood.
