An Equity Co-op presented by Pink Ink / Vancouver Little Theatre
Playwright: Daniel Thierrault Director: Stephanie Kirkland
Battery tells the story of Rip, owner of Rip's Electric Shop, his girlfriend Brandy, and his dim-witted shop assistant, Stan. Such is Rip's faith in the wonders of electronics that he subjects Stan to home-made shock treatments, all in the name of love. Using the motif and metaphor of electricity, Thierrault conducts us into a fantastic world that illuminates the limitations and dangers of a mechanistic view of life.
Cast: Rip: Brent Applegath Brandy: Denalda Williams Stan: David Wodchis
