We're happy to report that our friends at On the Boards in Seattle are presenting Burning Doors by Belarus Free Theatre from September 28 to October 1.

Belarus Free Theatre is one of the most politically charged theatre companies working today.

This description is taken from the On the Boards web site:

Where do you belong when your government suppresses your
basic right to expression? What do you do when the state imprisons you
for making art? How would you survive one of the most brutal prison
systems in the world? 

Belarus Free Theatre combines forces with Pussy Riot’s Maria
Alyokhina in her...

Pi Theatre is excited to be the presenting partner for Haley McGee's I'm Doing This For You at the rEvolver Festival, and it opens tonight!

Genetic Drift

We asked Tom Jones to write a blog entry for us about his experience becoming Gary 3. Read it here:

Factory Theatre Lobby
January 30, 2017

Richard was in Toronto recently for the first week of the Factory Theatre run of Empire of the Son. Here's what he has to say about his trip.

Toronto was great. Vibrant city. Great art. Empire of the Son was very well received and our hosts at Factory were very supportive. VACT is thrilled with the tour as was Pi, and I’m sure our man Tetsuro was in fine form on closing night. GM Shayna was back in her hometown, so naturally I was hoping the visit didn’t cause her to miss it so much that she’d want to move back there. The photo above is a picture of Factory’s video display board in their...

Dynasty Handbag
December 29, 2016

In the spirit of celebration and the celebratory spirit one gets when one catches themselves smiling, I’ve picked a couple of PuSh shows that I’m looking forward to seeing.

Dynasty Handbag promises a whole lot of uncompromising fun with a little serious intent sprinkled throughout.
