Picture the near future where the free world is overrun by corporatization & conglomeration. Not only can you drive the corporate car, but apply for a corporate wife. Dystopianism, paternalism, freedom and its illusions are all themes of this quirky drama.
Green Porno live
Presented by Isabella Rosselinni
Actor, writer, activist and socialite Isabella Rosselinni is bringing her YouTube sensation Green Porno to life for one night at the Vancouver Playhouse, presented by PuSh Performing Arts Festival & the Italian Cultural Centre. The eccentric use of costumes and props are expected to bring many faces out to the one-woman show. Passing the spotlight back and forth between present Rosselinni and past Rosselinni (facilitated by the use of her short films playing in the background) this show is sure to be steamy, sexy and firey.

A cold crime, dusty family secrets hidden for over a decade, a thrill, a twist… can you guess who wrote this? Christie’s half-genius, half-sick mind strikes again as the Metro Theatre brings to life the Le Marchent family, directed by Joe Hinks.

Stationary: A Recession Era Musical
The Cultch (historic theatre)
After hours spent plugging away at a desk job with a shaky advertising agency, weird stuff can start to happen… including bursting into song and dance with a group of Millennials itching to get out of the office. This painfully true and funny musical captures the internal war between responsibility and creativity in the light of a post-recession landscape. Alas, life is too short for musicians to be stuck at work, and now they can sing about it.BC, British Columbia, live theatre
