Director's Note

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...

a review from our archives...

By Max Wyman
Theatre Critic

“Warning,” says the pro-gram.  “Live welding.  Please do not look at the flame.” With a set-up like that, any show that’ s less than riveting is going to be in big trouble.


The new Pink Ink Theatre production of The Cezanne Syndrome manages to hold you for its non-stop 90 minutes – though it’s up to you to well the fragments of story into coherent form...

Pink Ink/Vancouver Little Theatre
to Nov. 4, 8:30 p.m.

SASKATCHEWAN writer Sharon Butala’s new play Element of Fire is for four actresses and it leaves every one of them stranded high and dry.  About the only ting to be said for it is that it has good intentions.  Well, you assume they must be good, but the play is so unskilfully cobbled...

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.

Rip: Brent Applegath
Brandy: Denalda Williams...

Promises Made in Bed

Playwrights: Bonnie Worthington & Sylvia Almerling

Director: Bonnie Worthington

Stella: Sylvia Almerling
John: John MacLaren

Director's Notes:

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...
