Vancouver’s 2018-2019 theatre season is well underway, and with it come so many choices. Fortunately, there are three shows currently playing on “stages” around the region that we think are worth checking out.
Tales of an Urban Indian (until Sep 30)
Over at North Vancouver’s Presentation House Theatre, Royal Canadian Air Farce’s Craig Lauzon literally takes us on a trip through Vancouver in Tales of an Urban Indian. Jump aboard the vintage 1964 transit bus as it winds its way from the North Shore through Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside as Lauzon tells the darkly comic story of Simon Douglas, an Indigenous man born on a BC reserve and raised on these very streets of Vancouver. Visit phtheatre.org for more information.

Kim’s Convenience (until Oct 6)
Ins Choi’s family comedy that spawned a television sitcom returns to Vancouver in a production at Pacific Theatre. In a production our reviewer says is “filled with humour and heart” and some dynamic performances, the stage version of Kim’s Convenience provides some necessary context and a surprisingly dark underbelly to its television sitcom counterpart. More information at pacifictheatre.org.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (until Oct 7)
At the Stanley Theatre on Granville Street, the Arts Club Theatre Company presents the stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. What our reviewer called “a fresh and uniquely theatrical spin on the ubiquitous family drama”, it is exciting debut for the company’s new artistic director. More information at artsclub.com.
