The Freedom of the City – Presented by Vital Spark Theatre

By Brian Friel
​Directed by Joan Bryans
When the police disrupt a peaceful civil rights protest, three unarmed strangers, a middle-aged mother and two young men, take refuge from the streets and find themselves in the Lord Mayor’s opulent office.  As the three settle in,  word spreads about its  “occupation”  and the motley trio is transformed into a band of armed and desperate terrorists, news that is taken up by the church, the media, the army, the law, and a creator of folk songs, all of whom use the narrative for their own diverse ends.
While set during the troubles in Derry, Northern Ireland, The Freedom of the City is, as Friel notes, about “The nature of power. The effect of power. The nature of poverty. The effect of poverty”.  And, above all, it is about the nature of truth and where it might be found.
SHOWS RUN Thursday – Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.
Talk back night: Thursday May 9th.
Tickets $15/30/ 35 will be available at eventbrite.ca 
Reservations:  604-224-8007, ext 3 . More info at vitalsparktheatre.com

When We Were Singing

May 31, 2024 - June 24, 2024

When We Were Singing written and composed by Dorothy Dittrich, directed by Roy Surette in association with Touchstone Theatre

A saga of friends and lovers, career crisis and personal angst. It is a story that switches gears in an instant to get at the heart of what makes people tick. When We Were Singing is an investigation of the friendship between four urban-dwelling lost souls. Work, loves, hopes, dreams, fears, failures – the story is pulled from the same source as our own lives. A musical like few others!
