Theatre In the Raw is coming to town with its Blue Western Sky Theatre Tour of One-Acts. The group is embarking on their 10th tour with the 19 year-old Vancouver Lower-Mainland independent based theatre company.
The first play in the one-act lineup is “Maybe Miles “by Joe Lauinger.
The second one-act “Talk Medicine” by Sheryl Melnyk is an in-depth monologue centred on a man stubborn in ways yet desperate to open up to ease a burden about strange and complex incidences in his life.
The last one-act on the roster is “The Suspect” by Andrzej Jar – a humourous yet chilling piece focused on a man increasingly withdrawn and skeptical as to what he sees around him. He suddenly becomes the mark for political subterfuge and deception far beyond his own imagination.
The music “Blues for the Road” is supplied by the Michelle Richard opening each evening with Zi Paris on guitar as her accompanist. Ms. Richard will add song and music close to the heart of each play.
The actors in this year’s touring company are the very talented and seasoned Roger Howie, Jason Hunt, Michelle Richard, Zi Paris, Jay Hamburger and Michelle Weisbom. The costumes are by longstanding designer Stephanie Jones, along with Jennifer Magajes as stage manager returning to another Theatre In the Raw production; the plays are directed by Jay Hamburger.
The Blue Western Sky Tour will open its production, performing at the Riverside Centre Theatre in Princeton on Thursday June 20, moving onto Cawston on Friday June 21 at the Cawston Community Hall.
The Theatre In the Raw box office number is: 604-708-5448 or (604) 708-5477.
