Farm to Fable

NOV 17–21, 2021
ONLINE PERFORMANCES

Written and directed by Amiel Gladstone

A Zoom cooking lesson for the audience turns into a farcical tour de force.

Surprisingly hilarious, surprisingly touching and surprisingly delicious. A new kind of dinner theatre.

East Van Panto: Alice in Wonderland

YORK THEATRE & ONLINE PERFORMANCES

THEATRE REPLACEMENT
Written by Sonja Bennett

Directed by Meg Roe
Music by Veda Hille with Ben Elliott

East Van Panto takes a trip
through the looking glass!

When a terribly bored Alice follows a White Rabbit onto the Skytrain, she falls down a hole only to find herself in a Grandview-Woodlands Wonderland. While tracking this elusive bunny, she encounters transit police officers Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dumb, a busking Cheshire Cat, gets some questionable advice from a cannabis connoisseur caterpillar, and has a heck of a time at a Commercial Drive leftist tea party.

The East Van Panto has never been so upside down. Hope we all come out of this trip in one piece!
