I hope I have not angered you by asking you to sit with your own sex. Driving to rehearsal last week I listened in shame to a CBC phone-in-show on International Women's Day. Shame because the federal budget cuts that will see so many womens' centres closed created so much fear. Shame that our province will probably only badges as substitutes. Shame that not one man was heard from during that segment of the show. 100,000 victims were burnt or hung as withces in Germany alone in a 200 year...

ROCKY PLAY LEAVES CAST HIGH AND DRY
by LLOYD DYKK
THE ELEMENT OF FIRE Pink Ink/Vancouver Little Theatre to Nov. 4, 8:30 p.m.

An Equity Co-op presented by Pink Ink / Vancouver Little Theatre
Playwright: Daniel Thierrault Director: Stephanie Kirkland
Battery tells the story of Rip, owner of Rip's Electric Shop, his girlfriend Brandy, and his dim-witted shop assistant, Stan. Such is Rip's faith in the wonders of electronics that he subjects Stan to home-made shock treatments, all in the name of love. Using the motif and metaphor of electricity, Thierrault conducts us into a fantastic world that illuminates the limitations and dangers of a mechanistic view of life.

Promises Made in Bed is Sylvia's first attempt at writing for the theatre and my first stab back at it after quite a few years absence. Promises in no way attempts to speak for all women, but it is very candid, and it provides, I think, a theatrical window for men and women to see into at least one woman's love.
The goal was fun, laughter, honesty, and compassion. During the writing and rehearsing of this play there have been weeks of...
