What is “The Chair”?

It sounds ominous doesn’t it? THE. CHAIR.

It’s pretty simple. There are 8 actors on stage and one chair. The actors take turns sharing a monologue which was written for them by John McGie. There are no props and no costumes. It’s bare bones theatre.

John asked the actors to give him one word and he would write a monologue inspired by that word and the very little (or a lot, as the case may be) he knew about us.

My words were Anticipation and Connection. I have two comedic pieces I’m very excited to share with you. And check out all the other talented actors I get to do a show with! (full bios on the ticket site and facebook event).

Get your tickets soon this place has a limited capacity.

Laugh Until Your Face Hurts at Teen Angst Night

DOIS_I5UQAABYbp

Somewhere in the back of your closet gathering dust and turning yellow with age is comedic gold. Those old journals, poems, and essays you wrote as a teenager are cringe inducing and that’s what makes them so good! Now, imagine sharing those old notes in front of an audience. That’s exactly what happens at Teen Angst Night.

Teen Angst Night is a comedic reading series. Readers can share anything (poetry, songs, letters, journals, diaries, essays, stories, plays, lists, etc.) so long as it follows these rules:

1- The work must be your own.
2- You must have written it between the ages of 10-19.
3- You cannot be proud of the work you share. It’s best if you’re super embarrassed.

Five Local Artists Totally Destroy Published Books At Say Wha?! Show

unnamed

Like my clickbait headline? Sorry, I had to do it. I’m just so excited to tell you about the awesome Say Wha?! show I produced last week.

The show featured: Emma Cooper! TJ Dawe! LeeAnn Kepel! AND Eric Fell! (Oh yeah, me too.)

A student from Langara College was there on an assignment to report on the event. She nicely summarized the show and wrote about who read which book –  but before you clink on the link, can you guess who read what?

Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought about them in the comments.
