Except in the Unlikely Event of War
A summit of minds in a secret military base. A radio broadcast from the brink of arctic war. Actors under government muzzle.
Pi and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades present the world premiere of the bold political satire Except in the Unlikely Event of War.By Sean Devine(Re:Union). This darkly comic, distinctly Canadian work is a probing exploration of art, politics, war, and the messy areas where they become indistinguishable. Featuring a cast of local luminaries, including Robert Moloney, Josette Jorge, Sean Devine, Lucia Frangione, and director Richard Wolfe. EITUEOW played November 15 - 30 at the Roundhouse Performance Centre. Join us after the show for drinks, entertainment and a chance to meet the actors at our Protest Lounge. Events include music, participatory art as well as the East and West Photography Exhibition by Ben Chan, Yui Hung Cheng, Johnathan Lau, John Laun and William Zhou (The Group of Five). There will also be a panel on the place of contemporary China in the global system. Join our newsletter, on our mainpage, for updates.

|Pi Theatre produces bold and uncompromising plays that explore modern life. We engage audiences with theatre that’s intellectually alive and emotionally charged. We are constant innovators whose experiments with form and format have rendered some of Vancouver’s most memorable and risk-taking experiences.||HHG Theatre is committed to the pillars of story, investigation, collaboration and risk. Never afraid to shine light into darkness, we create theatre that reveals the vulnerable heart and champions the brave idea. We’re a provocative and political group who are not content with holding a mirror up to society - we’d rather conduct an autopsy on it.|
