AboveBoard

By Peter Bloedel and Emily Kimball

Nick has a problem – his food keeps disappearing when he’s not around. So, he mounts a surveillance camera in his apartment to catch the thief, suspecting his friend/neighbour/aspiring magician and escape artist, Milo. Instead, he discovers Marnie, a mystery woman who is living in his kitchen cupboard after coming to New York to find out why her ex-fiancé abruptly broke off their engagement. After the video goes viral, Nick decides to host a meeting with her ex so she can find out what went wrong.

What Is Murder?

By Ken Levine

Four former Jeopardy Champions gather for a weekend to fine tune their skills in preparation for the Tournament of Champions but, when one of the contestants is found murdered, it becomes a game of cat and mouse between three “brainiacs” and a wily detective, who also just happens to be a clairvoyant though he has a somewhat questionable ability of communicating with the dead. Comedy, clues and surprises await Jerome, a pharmacy financial “facilitator”, Nicole, a social media “Influencer”, Eustasia, a Goth wedding planner and Kyle an all-time Jeopardy Champion.

CinderLOLah

By Linda Sharp

A Laugh Out Loud (LOL) panto with a modern, independent Cinderella!  Although the Fairy Godmother wants to keep things “traditional” – craziness ensues.  Cinderella and the Prince have fallen in love in their video game – but they have never met in person.  Only creatively wicked stepsisters, a pumpkin shortage, Cinderella’s fierce refusal to wear uncomfortable shoes and a million other things stand in the way of their meeting.  Come and Boo the villains, cheer on Cinderella, and laugh at bridge traffic for once – a great family tradition!

Marjorie Prime

By Jordan Harrison

It’s the year 2062 and artificial intelligence has solved all our problems. . . or has it created new ones? Jordan Harrison, the writer of the popular TV series Orange is the New Black, pushes our imaginations to the limit with this Pulitzer Prize nominee. Marjorie Prime illuminates what separates people from pixels: machines can be trained to copy what people do, but not how they feel. A science fiction story with heart. Theatre BC festival entry.
