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 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!
