Between the Sheets is hitting the road! Pi is heading to Victoria from January 29 to 31 for just FOUR performances.
We’ll be performing at George Jay at Richmond Elementary School, 8pm every evening, with a 4pm matinee on Saturday the 31.
Jordi Mand’s Between the Sheets is a dynamic work, an after-school drama that Pi has set in a real classroom. It’s a nails-on-chalkboard lesson where fiction meets reality. Taking place in a classroom combines the seating and stage into one intimate space, which allows for a fly-on-the-wall experience to occur.
The next production we’re going to revisit in our Throwback Thursdays is Aunt Dan and Lemon.
This show, produced in 1989, takes us into the world of the young recluse, Lemon, so nicknamed by her parents’ friend, Aunt Dan. The relationship that develops between Lemon and Aunt Dan forms the focus of this play about political orientation and the allure of certain ideas – even when they lead to murder.
Aunt Dan and Lemon won a Jessie award for Outstanding Performance (lead), and received nominations for Outstanding Direction and Performance (supporting).

of Blasted, we thought that we should celebrate Sarah Kane and everything that she contributed to theatre history, as well as the work that she inspired! That's why we are hosting the Sarah Kane Salon, where we’ll be welcoming members of the community to explore
Kane’s work through performance.
We’re looking for some Pi fans who want to get involved! Do you want to try your hand at performing a piece from another Sarah Kane play, exhibit a painting, or present a poem, dance / movement number, or a piece of music that you feel...
Pi is proud to be producing Sarah Kane's Blasted in 2015. This show will mark the 20th anniversary of the play's 1995 production at the Royal Court Theatre in London. When it first premiered, it was highly controversial and made headlines as a play that was just meant to shock audiences. However, Blasted now seems more at home in the present than it ever has in the past.
For those of you that don't know the story, it opens in a hotel room with a middle-aged alcoholic, foul-mouthed journalist and a young woman he is trying to seduce. The abusive relationship is thrown into a tailspin with the...
And to continue with the remainder of our Board of Directors, we have another director who joined Pi at our 2013 AGM, Fred Bantados. Fred is an operations manager for a technology company.
Fred couldn’t settle on his favourite theatre experience, but we thought that instead we would share what brought him to Pi in the first place. He was looking for a board to join, but wanted to find one that connected to him. That was when he saw our name and logo, and he was sold! We're thrilled to have Fred be a part of our Pi family.
Now we come to the newest directors on Pi's board. These two ladies...
