Hi, I’m Tilly, and I’m the new Prime Placement administration intern at Pi Theatre! I thought I’d use this blog post to tell you a bit about myself and my background, and the things I’ve been learning and doing during my first few weeks with Pi.

I’m from the UK and I’m in Canada on a 12 month working holiday visa. I came to Canada because it was a country I had always wanted to visit as a tourist, and I was also interested in learning about Canadian theatre, having heard that Vancouver had an especially creative and thriving theatre community. I have worked in various capacities as a freelance...

This weekend the Playwright’s Theatre Centre on Granville Island was the venue for Catalan Connection – readings of three plays from Catalonia, Spain, presented by Pi Theatre, Tant per Tant Saskatoon, PTC Vancouver, and Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal.

The playwrights and creative team from Tant per Tant had already rehearsed and read each play in Saskatoon, so Vancouver was their second stop on the tour. They had a day and half to rehearse each piece with a group of...

We’re thrilled to have been asked by Heather Redfern, ED of the Cultch, to open their 2010 / 2011 season. For those who didn’t see the show last year,  after the quake is a theatrical adaptation of two short stories (Superfrog Saves Tokyo and Honey Pie) by Haruki Murakami. They are both from the collection entitled after the quake and are set in the months that fell between the Kobe earthquake and the sarin gas attacks on Tokyo subway. They present a world marked by despair, hope, and a kind of human instinct for transformation. The adaptation was done by Frank Galati of Steppenwolf Theatre in...
