When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona, Millie, Bobby and Rachel you “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest most exciting night of your lives. They find laughter, love and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you are truly living

Further information from Director: Mitchell Mackay


BOBBY 20s. A young man of many talents and they all come to “bare” on a ladies’ bridge night in this rollicking comedy. Bobby is putting himself through medical school working as a exotic dancer until he accidently “performs” at the home of his new girlfriend Rachel – and her mother! Dancing or an ability to move is required. Choreography will be provided.
RACHEL ANN 20s. A young woman who seems to have issues with life and men until her mother’s bridge night unexpectedly opens her eyes. Rachel is a university drama student who likes a bit of drama. At times shy and insecure, at times bold and outgoing, Rachel’s date night with Bobby goes sideways in hilarious fashion. Puppetry skills are an asset but not required. Rachel operates Butterbutt, the family cat.

Auditions are open to everyone, however, preference will be given to existing members of the North Vancouver Community Players (NVCP).

Successful auditioneers must become members of NVCP prior to first rehearsal.
