Places Please: March 2015

By Chelsea Stuyt

PLACESPLEASEMarchVANCOUVER —

The Weir by Conor McPherson
Standing Room Only Theatre
March 7, 5 Billy Bishops Legion 2 p.m., and 12 p.m. respectively
March 11, 670 Smithe Street, 8 p.m.

Who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of eavesdropping? In the Weir, a group of Irish barflies sit in their local pub talking about life and love when the new girl in town turns up. Her arrival sparks a round of spooky storytelling and emotional outpourings that culminates in an unexpected finale. With live music playing throughout the performance and set in a real pub, The Weir is guaranteed to top up your Irish tank before St. Paddy’s.

Mushi No Hoshi – Space Insect
Dairakudakan
Vancouver Playhouse March 20 & 21, 8 p.m.

Butoh is the name of the Japanese style of dance seen in the surreal dance videos we’ve all seen on YouTube – the ones filled with twisting insectile movement and spandex onesies. And now it’s coming to Vancouver. Mushi No Hoshi – Space Insects features 22 of the finest butoh dancers as shape-shifting human/insects attempting to answer the question, “Who is the better caretaker of the world?” Not to be missed.

Corpus Christi
Ghostlight Productions
Performance Works
March 13-April 4, 8 p.m.

In what may be the most controversial production of the year, Terence McNally’s Corpus Christi asks “What if Jesus Christ were gay”? This re-telling of Christ’s life, teachings, and final persecution take on a new light in this play that’s been a hot topic of debate since the 1950s. See it to understand what all the fuss is about.

What you’re missing
Chutzpah Festival
Norman and Annette Rothstein Theatre
March 10-15, 8 p.m.

Naturally a play about politics, religion, money, and family objections to love is a comedy. In the North American premiere of Tamara Michner’s award winning play, a young couple plays meet the parents; a clash of cultures that’s been billed as “strikingly witty and polished.”

The Competition is Fierce
ITSAZOO productions
Renegade Studios
March 3–22 

This world premiere, written by Sebastien Archibald, is a play with an explicit warning attached. Taking office humour & satire to the next level, consider this is your warning of violence, coarse language, simulated sex and other exhilarating, racy scenes.
