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...

Our Secretary, Dawn Padget, is our longest standing director who joined the board in January 2011. Dawn is also a production secretary with a local theatre company.

Dawn's favourite experience is being involved with theatre every day through her job!

Craig’s favourite theatre experience so far was seeing Book of Mormon, and he definitely recommends it to everyone.

Since we have received our 30th anniversary mark, we decided to take a look back at the many productions that Pi has worked on over the years. Ever few Thursday we will post a blog that revisits Pi's past.

 

If we start at the beginning, the company was founded as Pink Ink Co-op in 1984 by Sandhano Schultze. He has decided to put on a production here in Vancouver that he had successfully presented in Germany in the past. Ratz by Peter Turrini was translated by the cast and crew, and was the first production by the newly established company in 1985. To make this show possible, Pink Ink took over...

Pi recently held our 2014 AGM on November 24th with PTC, and in addition to holding two full AGMs in just over half an hour, we also welcomed some new members to our board of directors.

We thought we would introduce all of our directors and let them tell you a little about themselves. For our first blog post, they will talk about their favourite theatre experience.

Starting at the top, please meet our board President, Rob Maguire. Rob is an arts marketing consultant that has been with Pi since January 2013.

"One of my most memorable theatre experiences came in high school, where I was the...
