Pi's Progress Lab Obstructions show entitled A Place Called Whisper: Circus of Stolen Dreams came and went on Saturday November 24. The Obstructions were a real gift. For those who are interested, I'm posting a short process blog here: Obstructions Process.
Thank you to everyone who came out to play with us this weekend at our Obstructions show A Place Called Whisper, especially our friends in Progress Lab who helped create such a wonderful atmosphere of happy chaos. The generosity of this community is humbling. Richard will be posting a longer blog on the process soon but these pictures (by Jeff Harrison) were too good to not share today.

Friday night saw a nearly sold out reading of the first stage adaptation of JJ Lee's Governor General Award nominated mémoire about a father, a son and a suit. The part of JJ was performed by Raugi Yu. I directed the reading. It was a honour to be asked to participate and I look forward to seeing the project move forward to its next stage of development.
We had a great time on Tuesday at AGMapalooza, participating for the first time! It's always an exciting evening hearing what our wonderful and creative friends have planned. Our friends at Rumble told us about their plan to stage Dante's Inferno in five minutes in an elevator, Leaky Heaven are doing theatre in the wilderness, and The Only Animal are creating a waterpark Lord of the Flies! We have so much wonderful theatre to look forward to.
